It is March 1935. The Great Depression is at its peak; Prohibition was recently repealed; and for millions of people across the country, syndicated columnist and sophisticate Alexander Brass is the voice of Manhattan high society and nightlife. When a mysterious man tries to interest Brass in photos of prominent people engaged in questionable acts, Brass is intrigued and has the stranger followed. But the stringer who was following him is murdered, his body found in the offices of an anti-Nazi group in Yorkville, and Brass finds himself in the middle of something far more sinister than simple blackmail. With the help of his aide-de-camp Morgan DeWitt and research assistant Gloria, Brass follows a trail that leads past the rich and famous such as a United States senator and Charles Lindbergh. All too quickly, they discover themselves in the midst of a most dangerous game in which, if they are too late smart, they'll be too soon dead.
