Pink Ladies and Black Velvets wet the whistles of guys and dolls in smokey underground speakeasies and elegant hubs like the Casino in Central Park where anything goes from bootleg whiskey to half-naked chorus girls. Where red hot jazz sizzles through the night. But in October 1929, two events are about to collide: the arrival of Miss Jeri Devlin and the Stock Market Crash.
In Jill Shure's new novel, Night Jazz, best described as The Great Gatsby meets Somewhere In Time, the mysterious disappearance of her brother sends successful ad executive, Jeri Devlin, to New York to find him. During her first night in The Big Apple, a strange event transports Jeri back seventy years to a magical time when the black cloud of the Great Depression was just beginning to descend over America, dulling the optimism and high times of the 1920's from the sultry speakeasies to the unimaginable wealth.
Forced to adapt to her new world until she can discover a way back to her own time, Jeri absorbs every bit of 1929 from the fashions by legendary designers, to unlawful booze. Her search will ultimately lead her into the passionate arms of a mysterious and handsome gangster, and to the happiness she has always longed for.
