Synopsis: From the author of Operation Underworld and The Wolves of Calabria comes the third in the Doc McKeowen trilogy of 1940’s P.I. stories.

1947 – The Mob establishes the Flamingo casino creating what will become the famous Vegas strip. The Federal Bureau of Narcotics, controlled by a dodgy Harry Anslinger, is given massive funding to start up what will become the failed War on Drugs. Senators Thomas and Rankin start their communist witch hunt against Hollywood where Jack Warner is at war with his writers and stars as the long established Studio System begins to crumble.

All this while the New York Yankees and the Brooklyn Dodgers, featuring the ABL’s first black player, face off in the first televised World Series. And oh yeah, it’s a Presidential re-election year.

With the newly available gizmo called ‘tele-vision’ Truman, Thomas, Rankin, Warner and their minions initiate a fight for control of the popular press that reverberates until today.

1947 – It was a great time to be alive. For some. But for Benjamin ‘Benny’ Joules’ a promising young script writer who just signed a lucrative contract with Warner Brothers it could be better. Young Joules’ contract was abruptly cancelled when his body is found hanging in the closet of his Greenwich Village apartment.

In the last book of the Operation Underworld Trilogy, The Broad in the Kimono, a remarkable episode f déjà vu is captured showing today’s political turmoil is a mere repeat of what has gone before.

Specifically in the year 1947.

With an all-star cast plucked straight from Washington D.C., The Hollywood Studios and the New York Mob, The Broad in the Kimono details the details of the illicit relationships that never went away.
