Publisher's Summary

David Fulmer won the Shamus Award for Best First P.I. Novel for his debut Chasing the Devil's Tail. In The Dying Crapshooter's Blues, he spins a riveting tale set amid the hustle and bustle of 1920s Atlanta.

On the same night a drunk cop shoots a gambler, a haul of priceless jewels is stolen - setting the stage for a mystery as complex and steeped in the blues as the city of Atlanta itself.

Critic Reviews

"Fulmer paints the sprawling vitality of 1920s Atlanta with broad strokes ... [a] vital effort from Shamus-winner Fulmer." ( Publishers Weekly)

A cast of characters that are hard to forget

This plot could probably be simplified to a paragraph. But the author's ability to paint images with words musuc and lyrics is like an adult picture book. Full of color, shapes and faces for vivid imaginations. Its hard to step back into the real world after reading a few chapters.
