Jimmy Mack is finally playing with some killer musicians. -Literally. Jack Maeby’s action-packed crime novel is available at: www.wildchildpublishing.com Welcome back, Jimmy Mack. You still crazy? His friends and fellow musicians want to know. He’s free, off anti-psychotic meds and back on the scene, playing jazz and R&B in the urban backwater of Albany, New York in 1972. Life seems almost normal until members of the soul music revue he’s working with start turning up dead, and Jimmy is the main suspect. It doesn’t help that he’s falling for Yvonne, a devastatingly beautiful singer, who may be up to her cool blue eyes in a deadly scheme. Jimmy looks to his friend Laidlaw, a methadone-addicted keyboard genius, and Shorty, an irascible soul-music DJ, to help him avoid the cops, the killers and his own descent back into madness. The story unfolds in the rhythms of jazz and blues, with stops at chitlin’ circuit nightclubs, gay cabarets and after-hours discotheques. Music becomes Jimmy’s refuge, as well as the key to figuring out who the real killer is. Jimmy has some hard choices to make as he faces his inner demons. “The suspense is gripping. The action scenes are superbly written, and kept me on the edge of my seat. This is a fantastic read that I wholeheartedly recommend!” - Coffee Time Reviews To read an excerpt and purchase the ebook, go to: www.wildchildpublishing.com
