I received this book for free in exchange of an honest review from the Goodreads ARR program. It is a great program and you get to read some wonderful stories!

This was a neat read! The Golden Merra is the start of a series of stories starring Wil Driscoll and Albert. Wil Driscoll is, well, how do describe him? He is a scoundrel, a pilot, and a smuggler. We meet him just after he has crashed his uncle's plane and is going to a dog meet in New Orleans to see if he can pay his uncle back.

He was invited by an old 'friend' from his days in the service (the story is set in the late 1920s) who seems to have done well for himself. The invite includes a free room in the Golden Merra as well as free drinks - what more could a guy want? However, Wil finds out that the hotel isn't exactly first class and that he will be sharing a room with Albert. Albert owns one of the dogs that will be running in the races.

I don't want to reveal much more of the story. I loved the setting and the way the story was told; it opens as if it is an introduction to an old radio show. And who doesn't love a story set during Prohibition? Dames, Gangsters, and action. Loved it and I can't wait for part two. ( )
