Publisher's Summary

Lanie Price, a 1920s Harlem society columnist, witnesses the brutal nightclub kidnapping of the "Black Orchid," a sultry, seductive singer with a mysterious past. When hours pass without word from the kidnapper, puzzlement grows as to his motive. Then, a gruesome package arrives at Price's doorstep, and the questions change.

Just what does this kidnapper want - and how many people is he willing to kill in order to get it? Evil hides behind the genteel facades of affluent Strivers' Row and stalks the ballroom of one of Harlem's most famous gay parties.

In a complex plot that keeps you mesmerized, Black Orchid Blues explores the depths of human depravity and the desperation of its victims.

A better Lanie Price Mystery

Any additional comments?

I liked the other Lanie Price Mystery, Darkness and the Devil Behind Me, but this one was much smoother and easier to get into with a racier storyline. The narrator did a good job and the story was enjoyable, especially the end. I did NOT see that coming.

Rousingly good mystery!

Such a great story! Great characters in a golden age set in a classic location. Jazz age Harlem never looked so good. We need to see Lainie and this story on the screen. What a plot! And the dialogue? Wow!
