Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0985733217, Paperback)Prohibition-era mobsters collide with Underground Railroad abolitionists in The Jazz Cage. It is 1924—sixty years after the South’s victory in the Civil War. Frank McCluey, bounty hunter for the mob, is sent to help out a wealthy Virginian bootlegger. Frank’s job: track down two female slaves who’ve run away from the millionaire. But the mob has made a bad choice. Instead of capturing the women, Frank decides to help them escape to Canada, his mission now aided by the pint-sized but steel-willed runaway Della and the outlawed Underground Railroad. Soon Della and Frank become the target of slave catchers, cops, gangsters, and most chilling of all, a Confederate agent nicknamed the Hound for his ability to always sniff out and disembowel his prey.
