Abstract:

Moving into the building that once hid a speakeasy, Ella Hawthorne uncovers the Jazz Age story of a scandalous love triangle involving redheaded flapper Gin Kelly, a rugged Prohibition agent, and a wealthy debonair Princetonian.

1998: Discovering her banker husband has a secret life, Ella Gilbert escapes to Greenwich Village. Her musician neighbor, Hector, warns her to stay out of the basement after midnight, when noise strikes up-- laughter, clinking glasses, jazz piano, the occasional bloodcurdling scream. Back in the Roaring Twenties, the building hosted one of the city's most notorious speakeasies. 1924: Flapper Geneva "Gin" Kelly is a regular at the Christopher Club. Caught up in a raid, Gin strikes a bargain with Revenue agent Oliver Anson to catch her stepfather, Duke Kelly, one of Appalachia's most notorious bootleggers.
