Waterstones Says

From the author of Golden Hill comes an exhilarating story of murder by the Mississippi as the fictitious town of Cahokia spills over into recrimination and violence when a corpse is found on the roof of a skyscraper.

It's 1922 and Americans are drinking in speakeasies, dancing to jazz, stepping quickly to the tempo of modern times. In the ancient city of Cahokia - a teeming industrial metropolis, a tinderbox of every race and creed - peace holds. Just about.

But on a snowy night at the end of winter, two roughshod detectives are called to the roof of a skyscraper. Their investigation will spill the city's secrets and bring it, against a soundtrack of wailing clarinets, either to destruction or rebirth.

“Cahokia Jazz Stands Out as the Definitive Golden Age Thriller!”

A rich and spell binding example of world building that pulls you in and perfectly evokes a golden age of intrigue and a masterclass in crime writing that makes Cahokia Jazz feel somehow both classic and truly unique... More

“Not Great”

Cahokia Jazz had been likened to a classic film noir, so I was really looking forward to it
Unfortunately I found it very two dimensional and formulaic
