The original title of the book: Dead Man's Blues

Dead Man's Blues is the gripping historical crime novel from Ray Celestin, the author of The Axeman's Jazz, winner of the CWA John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger for Best First Novel.

Chicago, 1928. In the stifling summer heat three investigations begin . . .

Pinkerton detectives Michael Talbot and Ida Davis are hired to locate a missing heiress. But it proves harder than expected to find a woman known across the city.

After being called to a gruesome murder in Chicago’s violent Black Belt, crime-scene photographer Jacob Russo can’t get the dead man’s image out of his head, and decides to track down the culprit himself.

And with a group of city leaders poisoned at the Ritz, Dante Sanfelippo – rum-runner and fixer – is called in by Al Capone to discover whether someone is trying to bring down his empire.

As the three parties edge closer to the truth, their paths will cross and their lives will be threatened. But will any of them find the answers they need in the city of blues, booze and brutality?

A wonderfully vivid portrait of pre-war America in the crucible: with its plot twists galore and fabulous cast of minor characters, this is a crime novel to savour (Mail on Sunday)

    Having enjoyed the axe mans jazz I had high hopes for this follow up. I'm happy to say I wasn't disappointed. We find ourselves in Chicago this time with Michael and Ida working for the Pinkertons. They are approached by the mother of a missing socialite and tasked with finding out what happened to the missing girl. We also have a plot to distabilise al Capone who has just bee diagnosed with syphillis. It is an exciting read and kept me gripped late into the night. Looking forward to more instalments of the series and hope they are the same standard.

    Excellent on so many levels - a crime, interesting and varied characters, music, the description of 1928 Chicago, etc. etc. Even better than The Axeman's Jazz which is high praise as that was one of the best crime thrillers I have read in recent years.

    This is the best book I have read so far this year. Well written, fabulous characters, who you grow to love, and a great story line.I highly recommend this book.

    You know you are enjoying a book when it seems absolutely impossible to put down until you have reached the end. Well plotted, developed characters and a tangible sense of time and place, this book is one of the best thrillers I have read in years. The Louis Armstrong connection is not central to the narrative but an interesting element, as we follow the progress of the two protagonists, Ida and Michael.

    This work has been selected by scholars as being culturally important, and is part of the knowledge base of civilization as we know it.It is the result of fifteen years of research by the author, Alexander Del Mar, in great libraries and coin collections of Europe.With lips compressed and clouded brow, he strode up and down the oaken floor, the very genius and impersonation of asceticism, while the great bell still thundered and clanged above his head.What's Ghana's most popular sport?He also asks a number of under-examined legal and philosophical questions: What is the relationship between the 'rule of law' and the border?More fundamentally the work illustrates the theoretical, design, and patent system policy issues in a transition from personal to impersonal trade in ideas.
