Book #1 Description
An alcoholic walks into a bar . . and buys it. In this amateur sleuth mystery, Elder Darrow uses the last of the money from his trust fund to buy the Esposito, a bucket-of-blood bar in Boston, hoping to turn it into a jazz nightspot. Though he knows owning a bar will test his sobriety, he relies on support from his ex-lover, a jazz singer named named Alison Somers.
The two split when Alison moved to New York for her career but before she left, she promises to take her antidepressants if he stays off the booze. Then Elder hears she has killed herself by diving out her apartment window.
His instinct tells him she wouldn’t have committed suicide. Trying to uncover the real story, he encounters a Native American gangster with aspirations to management, a beautiful collector of jazz memorabilia, and a bomb-throwing piano player. Along the way to finding the truth, Elder entangles himself in a web or greed and corruption that threatens more than his sobriety.
