Prohibition means two things in the Border city of Windsor, Ontario: big business, and big trouble. Book #1 – Riverside Drive Jack McCloskey returned to Windsor, Ontario, from the Great War lost in a battle with his inner demons. When he channels his energy into amateur fights, he's noticed by a gangster moonlighting as a boxing promoter. After a brief professional stint, Jack is invited to join the crew in the early days of Prohibition along the Detroit River. Book #2 – Maiden Lane It's the winter of 1923 and the border towns are under a deep freeze. As if the police didn't have their hands full, drug-smuggling, human trafficking, and a grisly find in the river steer them into unfamiliar territory, and a whisper of the occult brings a wholly unexpected twist. Book #3 – Prospect Avenue For bootleggers like Jack McCloskey, Prospect Avenue is just another dead end, and not even one of the better ones, but at least it’s away from prying eyes. But Jack is about to learn that what goes on in the shadows isn’t at all as “nice” as what he does, as the trade in opium – and people – picks up in Windsor. Includes Riverside Drive Maiden Lane Prospect Avenue

Prohibition takes the battle, along with the party, to the streets. Jack McCloskey returned to Windsor, Ontario, from the Great War shell-shocked and battling inner demons. Channeling his energy into amateur fights, he’s noticed by a gangster sidelining as a boxing promoter. After a brief professional stint, Jack is invited to join the crew. It’s the early days of Prohibition along the Detroit River. Feeling trapped, Jack often tries to escape by throwing himself into relationships that are doomed from the start. Complicating matters further, a crime lord descends on the Border Cities, taking over all smuggling activity to finance his covert political agenda. In sharp contrast is the story of Vera Maude, a young librarian also yearning to escape, but to the cafes of Greenwich Village or the Left Bank. All she lacks is will. The climax occurs in a gripping battle at the crime lord’s house on Riverside Drive and its surprising aftermath the following morning.
