China Blues
by Pamela Longfellow

San Francisco, 1923. Spoiled heiress Lizzie Stafford Hamilton, unloved by her ambitious, unfaithful husband James, falls for an aphoristic Chinese bootlegger. Meanwhile, her long-time admirer, hardened newsie Kit Dowie, suffers quietly, jotting everything down. Klondike Madame Rose St. Lorraine administers the finest nightclub on the coast, patronized by Warren G. Harding himself (seeking consolation for Teapot Dome troubles). But rival bootleggers, tied to ruthless but incompetent James Hamilton, plan to cut off the competition at the legs. The vogue for including historical personages is observed: Louis Armstrong, Dashiell Hammett, and King Oliver are here.
