The Blues Don't Care by Paul D Marks

Take a trip back in time, to Los Angeles in the middle of World War II, for Paul D Marks‘ evocative and hugely engaging noirish novel. Meet Bobby Saxon, a wannabe jazz player who has set his sights on a spot behind the piano in Booker ‘Boom Boom’ Taylor’s band. Problem is, Bobby is white and the band is black. He gets his chance at a gig on an illegal gambling cruise, where disaster strikes – a man is killed and one of Bobby’s bandmates is put in the frame. Bobby is pressed into service as a reluctant private eye in a book that has a surprise waiting around every corner. Read our review here.
