Dear Librarians,

It's Prohibition. It's Philadelphia. And Jersey Leo doesn't fit in. Jersey is an albino of mixed race. Known as "Snowball" on the street, he tends bar at a speakeasy the locals call the Ink Well. There, he's considered a hero for having saved the life of a young boy. But when his old grade school buddy, Aaron Garvey, calls from death row and asks for one last favor, all hell breaks loose.

This is the second novel in the popular Jersey Leo crime series. The Library Journal had this to say about the first in a starred review: "Don't miss this absolutely riveting, gritty coming-of-age tale. Absorbing and briskly paced."
