Blackjack Endicott, the Boston banker who rubs shoulders with both mobsters and millionaires, is called to California to fins out who's trying to blackmail FDR.
Blackjack Endicott, the Boston banker who rubs shoulders with both obsters and millionaires is called to California to find out who's trying to blackmail FDR with some very unseemly photographs of son Elliot. Tipped off by gangster Meyer Lansky that labor racketeers are behind the scheme, Blackjack and the beautiful Charolotte Wendell take the Zephyr to Hollywood where they mingle with mobster, movie stars and moguls.
It's history, Hollywood and mystery, how good can you get?
