    Summary

    Chicago, 1929
    America's experiment with banning the sale of alcohol has largely failed. However, the laws are still in effect, meaning that most people make use of illegal speakeasies to get their fix. Owners of such establishments and illegal liquor distributors are living like kings, but tensions between rival gangs are higher than ever, and threatening to break out into all-out war.

    Enter Eva Mohn, an aspiring singer from a small town who gets more than she bargained for when she takes a gig at an underground speakeasy and meets Christoffer Schistad- bootlegger, skirt chaser, and known associate of infamous crime boss William Magnusson.

    Summary

    “My life changed this morning,” He reached into his pocket and pulled out a piece of paper that looked to have been torn out of a book. “I was laying in bed when my laundress came by and said that a young man with glasses came by this morning. He couldn’t stay because he was on his way to work, but he dropped this off.”

    He handed the note over like it was a precious gem, slowly pressing it into his palm. The note, written on what looked like a page from Othello, read in cursive writing:

    ‘Hans,
    Sorry I missed last week. I’ve been working sunrise to sunset since I got here. But, I’m free today after I finally settle into the new house and I heard you never miss a Friday night unless there’s a natural disaster. So I hope to see you tonight.
    Best wishes. Ernst’

    Summary

    “I’m sorry,” Han says, “but I’ve got a prior engagement to see to. You understand, yeah?” He doesn’t ask how the man knows his name because he’s afraid he’s just gotten himself into some serious trouble. Wedge’s grin grows and two men exit the front of the vehicle, big and brawny. Han puts up his hands and squeezes his eyes shut.

    “I’ll come, I’ll come. No need for any nastiness, right fellas?” He asks the two big men but their eyes are blocked my their hats and they say nothing, just the shorter man Wedge coming forward again.

    “Don’t worry, Mr. Solo, the boss won’t harm you, he just wants to talk.”

    OR: Two mobs are at war in 1920s New York City and everything seems to revolve around the odd Skywalker family and the rift between them. A young thief, Han Solo, finds himself caught up in it when he meets one Obi-Wan Kenobi and his life is forever changed...
