Description
Hired to promote the new American dream car, a former reporter finds himself mired in a deadly conspiracy against a union boss and Ford Motors itself It's only been two decades since Connie Minor was on top, but it feels like centuries. Once a journalist, Minor spent Prohibition with his finger on gangland's pulse, a confidant of every rumrunner, boss, and triggerman in Detroit. But as the gangsters fell, Minor went with them, replaced by a generation of reporters more interested in the Nazi Party than the inner workings of the Purple Gang. Now it's the 1950s, and after years writing mindless ad copy, Minor fears that his brain may be permanently atrophied-that is, until an exciting new job drops on his desk. Minor is hired to sell Ford's most original creation, the Edsel, meant to take America by storm. But the job quickly reintroduces him to some ugly old Detroit faces. When he uncovers a conspiracy against both a union leader and the new car, his reporter's instincts kick in. It's been years since Minor gabbed with mobsters, but it's never too late for an old newspaperman to get whacked. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Loren D. Estleman including rare photos from the author's personal collection.
