    Summary

    Tom Hardy is much too good looking to not be getting laid in this series. We need to do something about that. 

    Alfie Solomons has a candidate for his bakery's new foreman. Spoiler alert: not a man.

    Mabel's middle class upbringing didn't stop her from jumping at the chance to work in factories during the war, running circles around the men there. Now she's knocking on Alfie Solomons' door, and she's fully capable of running circles around him. Who's going to get dizzy first?

    Summary

    If you’re reading this, it means I’m not back yet. But don’t worry about me, Jean. I’ll be okay. Don’t worry. Don’t come looking for me. And whatever you do, don’t call the coppers.

    The year is 1924, and editor-in-chief Marco Bodt has gone missing, last seen at a speakeasy in the heart of Boston. When Jean takes it upon himself to investigate, his search finds him at the door of Mikasa Ackerman—the sweet-talking lounge singer at the speakeasy by night, and cold-hearted boss of the formidable Ackerman Family by day. But help from the Family comes at a cost, and the more time Jean spends with crime and the city, the more secrets he keeps from his family and friends at home, and the more he starts to think that Marco was never exactly who Jean thought he was.
