Publisher's summary

Nominated for The Best Private Eye Hardcover Novel of the Year

Chosen as one of the top ten books of the year by Kirkus.

Chosen as one of the best mystery novels of the year by Deadly Pleasures Magazine

Winner, Spotted Owl Award for Best Mystery by a Northwest Writer.

Shamus nomination for Best Private Eye Hardcover Novel.

Chicago, 1969: The trial of eight protestors from the Democratic Convention the previous year has the whole world watching - and all of Chicagoland on edge. Smokey Dalton feels the pressure: more cops on the streets, more FBI in his neighborhood. But when the landlord at one of Sturdy Investments’ South Side properties dies alone in his apartment, Smokey agrees to investigate. He finds old human bones in the basement, along with hints of more.

Smokey and his girlfriend, Sturdy’s CEO Laura Hathaway, worry that Laura’s father knew who used that basement and why. Without involving law enforcement, they decide to hold a thorough investigation and discover secrets they never ever imagined - secrets that could threaten Smokey, Laura, Sturdy, and one of Chicago’s greatest institutions. Secrets worth killing for.

Critic reviews

"Set in 1969 during the trial of the Chicago Eight, Edgar-finalist Nelscott’s sixth Smokey Dalton novel deftly interweaves the issue of race with politics, societal question and personal relationships." (Publisher’s Weekly)
"When Kris Nelscott started her impressive series about Smokey Dalton...many critics and readers wondered how long she could keep up the pace. Days of Rage, her sixth book in the Dalton series, indicates there seems to be no end in sight." (Chicago Tribune)

A sad story

A sad story about life in the slums. This book has some bad language. Not my kind of reading but I'm sure some may like it.
