Running liquor between Montreal and Windsor was the accepted way of making a fast dollar a couple of decades ago. But when Dave Manley left his newspaper job in Winnipeg to write fiction in Montreal he would have disagreed violently with anyone who even suggested that he'd soon be a rum-runner himself.
Of course that was before he met Cherie - the girl from Lunenburg who had been learning about life since she was 16 - and who intended to teach Dave what she knew.
Dave hadn't met The Mayor either - a fabulous character who was kingpin in the slot-machine and liquor rackets, and who operated luxuriously from poverty stricken Cote St. Paul.
With the heart-beat of a great city as its background, here is a story which lifts the veil of those easy-money days and paints a realistic picture of love, brutality and murder.
