The year is 1949. The place is Chicago in the dead of winter. The trauma of the war and its aftermath has yet to dissipate. The housing shortage is severe and the boom time of the 1950's still lies ahead. Into town rolls a grifter, a lost soul on the make. As plots are hatched and lives are broken, this runaway train of a story speeds out of control on a one-way track to hell.

About the Author:

Steve Shadow is originally from the North side of Chicago. He spent his early youth mostly wasting time. In due course he morphed into an intellectual street punk, where he stayed one step ahead of the law, while pursuing acting, writing and subtle misdemeanors. When the 60s arrived he jumped headfirst into the maelstrom of sex, drugs and rock and roll. Despite these career-killing impediments he managed to obtain advanced degrees while attending both Northwestern and Roosevelt University. After a long stint in the porn biz he headed West to the Esalen Institute, followed by a multi-year sojourn in Carmel, California under the watchful eye of Clint Eastwood. An extended return to shady ventures in the Chicago area led once more to a necessary and hasty retreat to the desert Southwest, where he now dwells as an aging hipster and local bon-vivant As he is fond of saying, "The winds of change blow hot and dry. Watch the rear view mirror and stay off the radar."
