2 journalers for this copy...
Wyatt Earp has turned into a private detective in Los Angeles. The late Doc Holliday's former mistress wants him to turn Doc's son around from the shady path he is on in New York City. And, since Wyatt would like to meet up again with Bat Masterson, now a sportswriter, he agrees to go. But this NYC in the 1920s and it is the Jazz Age in New York and the bad guys there are toting machine guns. Hey, wait a minute, isn't that Tommy Guns? And he runs into Al Capone. This must be before Al abandoned New York for Chicago.
I usually enjoy the Max Allan Collins books.
This is really Max Allan Collins and I enjoy his "disaster" books. This is kind of like them. A certain dash of truth with a made up story.
And, of course, he can't resist "time to get out of Dodge."
To be released at the Bonus Meet Up at Cafe Mozart, Evanston.
If there are no takers, it will be left with other books which were, last I noticed, by the "condiments" stand in the center.
