From the Cover


"When Yiddish Bulldog Hymie Stiehl, one of the world’s most memorable characters and a raconteur around the City of Big Shoulders, learns that Jungle Jim Alavera of the Chicago White Sox has disappeared, he knows he has to act fast!

"Realizing that Alavera is still alive but in great danger, Stiehl fakes his own death, only to reemerge underground—in drag—to locate his long-time friend.  When he begins finding bodies dropping like flies at a bad delicatessen, Stiehl calls upon the local D.A. and the venerable 12th Precinct to step in to help solve the case—and very nearly ends up a statistic, himself."
