“A great noir detective story set in late 1929 that features mobsters and speakeasies, Kaleidoscope also boasts an unusual twist. These are great characters in an exciting and engaging story.”

Jack Romaine's addiction to speakeasies and cards has landed him in a tight spot. He becomes an unwilling recruit for a gangster - on the trail of stolen money and railroad bonds. He finds he isn't the only one on this trail - and his competition is a sadistic killer who relishes carnage... The trail he follows leads him to Kaleidoscope; a 'beddy' for freaks during the months when carnival is out-of-season....
