Read an Excerpt:

Days later Steele and Ruby arrange to meet James at the Five Points Cocktail Bar on San Pedro Square and hurried over. 

Ruby loved the old glamorous gangster vibe the bar gave off. She was glad Steele picked a table located near the window facing San Pedro Square. 

Steele and Ruby sat together on one side across from James.

The Bartender walked over. “Any drink orders?”

“I’ll take a White Devil,” James chuckled. 

“In that case, I’ll have a Vatican City,” Steele said.

“Give me a Ready Aim Fire,” Ruby said. “In case I need to put a bullet in the White Devil.”

“That’s my girl,” Steele laughed. 

“So, what is our topic of conversation?” James asked. “Or should I guess?”
