With the blessing of convicted congressman Leo Lundatos (since when did a little thing like a conviction hamper a Chicago politician?), Jimmy Flannery is poised to take over the famous Tenth, or Mayor's Ward. Jimmy has his doubts about this quick move up the political ladder -- especially as it seems to bring new friends and old enemies out of the woodwork -- but his friends, family, and old network of supporters cheer him on. Flannery's particularly nervous about Maggie Lundatos -- Leo's alluring soon-to-be ex-wife -- who may or may not be scheming to lure Jimmy into her luxurious bed.At the same time, Jimmy is fighting a well-organized right-winger's plan to ban "offensive" fiction from the Chicago public schools. When someone takes a shot at Jimmy from a moving auto in the wee hours of the morning -- a shot that slays his political ally and friend Mabel Halstead -- is it an old enemy or a new one? Jimmy's search for Mabel's killer, in the midst of the rough-and-tumble of a Windy City political campaign, yields some surprising results.

This is probably not the best chapter to begin the series as it is light on mystery and focuses mainly on politics and conniving and influence. It also refers quite a bit to the previous book in the series, Lion's Share, and it is almost a sequel to that one.
It is peopled with street thugs, transgender ex-cops, book banners, sexy political ladies, and more, and, of course, a murder. It is perhaps all part of the changing world Flannery finds himself in and in which some folks are not quite comfortable with yet. ( )
