The biggest event in the island's history is coming up--an integrated dance featuring Duke Ellington. It's a daring idea for fifties-era Texas, and not everyone is happy about it. But soon interracial dancing becomes the least of the Sweetwaters' problems. Galveston mobsters track a runaway girl to Shady's and decide the offbeat island is the perfect place to diversify their illegal rackets . . . And God help anyone who gets in their way.
Suddenly, life on sleepy little Ransom Island becomes crowded, complicated--and very, very dangerous.
