One O'Clock Jump: A Swing Town Mystery | [Lise McClendon]

One O'Clock Jump: A Swing Town Mystery

Halfway around the world, war has begun, but for Dorie Lennox, a newly minted private eye on her first tail, danger is more immediate. The dark streets of Kansas City of 1939 offer swing music, fast cars, gangsters, and the chance to forget about the Depression and her own murky past. But first she must conquer her fears and save a woman on a bridge high above the muddy Missouri. Dorie is thrown into a quickly unraveling scam that offers salvation to few - and misery to plenty - in the high-stakes world of machine politics and desperation deals.

Publisher's Summary

Halfway around the world, war has begun, but for Dorie Lennox, a newly minted private eye on her first tail, danger is more immediate. The dark streets of Kansas City of 1939 offer swing music, fast cars, gangsters, and the chance to forget about the Depression and her own murky past. But first she must conquer her fears and save a woman on a bridge high above the muddy Missouri. Dorie is thrown into a quickly unraveling scam that offers salvation to few - and misery to plenty - in the high-stakes world of machine politics and desperation deals.

With vivid prose and sharp dialogue, the world of Dorie Lennox comes alive behind the wheel of her Packard in jazz-age Kansas City. The landscape of America and the homefront of World War II are evoked in a thoughtful mystery that lingers for the force of its characters and the keen sharpness of a slice of history seen through the perceptive, compassionate eyes of Dorie Lennox.
