Rare manuscript theft, forgery, crooked land developers, the gangs of New York and a Chinese cellist in 1939 New York City! Swing musician Katy Green agrees to help a friend, a music conservatory teacher in New YorkÆs roughest neighborhood, hunt for a stolen music manuscript. This rare and valuable autograph manuscript--perhaps a forgery-- of a Paganini guitar quartet has inexplicably vanished. What Katy first thinks will be the easy pursuit of a petty thief swiftly turns into a deadly fugue of greed, jealousy, and zealotry, and a fight for her life. Her fight to keep a Chinese cellist friend from being deported evokes 2003, but KatyÆs in New York in 1939, before the Empire State Building has enough tenants, before all the subways have been built, when HellÆs Kitchen gangs shoot homemade linoleum knives at people.
