From award winning author Danny Gardner comes ACE BOON COON the second in the Tales of Elliot Caprice historical crime fiction series about a disgraced police officer caught between worlds black and white good and bad It’s 1950s Illinois and Elliot Caprice has returned to his rural Southville homestead to help his uncle save the family farm whi I received an ARC of this book via NetGalley in exchange for a reviewWhen I opened the first Elliot Caprice novel A Negro and an Ofay I told my husband that I wanted to be Danny Gardner when I grew up His prose takes you smack into the middle of a scene in that particular case a Chicago jail cell during Jim Crow and doesn't let go of you until after you close the cover of the bookIn this seuel Caprice is still trying to help save his uncle's farm as well as figuring out how many of his old friends from childhood are involved in a racketeering short paper operation aka collecting protection money and why so many of them seem to turn up deadOne of the things that was a little confusing is that flashbacks to Caprice's childhood were not readily delineated You had to figure out from context that he was now a little kid or a teenager or a soldier and then you'd find yourself back in the main setting of the book It was a distraction at times as I had to go back and re read to make sure I understood what was going onIn the end though Gardner presented another solid historical noir detective story with twists and turns than Chicago has back alleys Highly recommended
