Ray Celestin

Dead Man’s Blues

Published by: Mantle

In Dead Man’s Blues Ray Celestin has produced a dazzling successor, more than living up to his award-winning debut, Axeman’s Jazz, set in New Orleans. A riveting treat of a read is to be enjoyed in this super-charged and brilliantly imagined evocation of gangster and jazz-rich1920s Chicago with Pinkerton detectives Talbot and Davis.
