A signed hardcover edition is the perfect gift. And Phil Brown will even write out a personal message to your special someone, if you wish.
Set in 1926, during the height of Prohibition, it tells the story of Tashan Zho, an alien scientist sent to the primitive planet Earth on a rescue mission only to be caught in the middle of a turf war between infamous mobster Jack “Legs” Diamond and a fictional bootlegger Major Mike Kelly. Kelly is the leader of a gang of World War One veterans selling bootleg whiskey after the war. Zho soon learns that Kelly is the v key to completing his mission. Meticulously researched the fictional characters interact with actual historical figures such as mobster Jack “Legs” Diamond, Heavyweight boxing champ Jack Dempsey, and World War One heroine Edith Cavell. By setting several important plot points at the infamous Craig Colony, the author seeks to shine a light on the human rights abuses that occurred there in the early Twentieth century.
