This is a distinctly different, American gangster story.
Mobster Louis Gainsborough meets glamorous Dolores (FBI Agent Cody in disguise) in the bar owned by his criminal rival Frank Schulz…..except that these characters continually interrupt the imagination of the writer as he creates this story.
Louis gets to choose his own name. Feisty Dolores decides what she will and won’t do and say. Meanwhile, the action moves atmospherically towards its double crossing and surprisingly murderous end.
