Journal Entry 1 by Daelith from Memphis, Tennessee USA on Friday, June 13, 2008
Library sale book

In the seventh entry in Campbell's splendid series featuring Chicago sewer inspector Jimmy Flannery (the Edgar-winning The Junkyard Dog ), the part-time detective is moved by incipient parenthood to reach at last for the committeeman's job in the 27th ward. As an established cog in the city's dying Democratic machine, he is obliged to respond when party head Ray Carrigan asks him to look into the strange death of his retired secretary. Goldie Hanrahan was not only a power broker within the party, she was also something of a hot number, whose entanglements included a whole list of old-time pols, not the least of whom was Flannery's father. The death is somehow tied to the birth of Goldie's illegitimate son some 40 years earlier, and Flannery soon begins uncovering secrets a lot of people would rather leave buried.
