Hired to promote the new American dream car, a former reporter finds himself mired in a deadly conspiracy against a union boss and Ford Motors itself Ita€™s only been two decades since Connie Minor was on top, but it feels like centuries. Once a journalist, Minor spent Prohibition with his finger on ganglanda€™s pulse, a confidant of every rumrunner, boss, and triggerman in Detroit. But as the gangsters fell, Minor went with them, replaced by a generation of reporters more interested in the Nazi Party than the inner workings of the Purple Gang. Now ita€™s the 1950s, and after years writing mindless ad copy, Minor fears that his brain may be permanently atrophieda€”that is, until an exciting new job drops on his desk. Minor is hired to sell Forda€™s most original creation, the Edsel, meant to take America by storm. But the job quickly reintroduces him to some ugly old Detroit faces. When he uncovers a conspiracy against both a union leader and the new car, his reportera€™s instincts kick in. Ita€™s been years since Minor gabbed with mobsters, but ita€™s never too late for an old newspaperman to get whacked. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Loren D.
