This is poetry in prose: the psychology of an unpunished murder. I probably should say prosecuted murder; all of the main characters are punished one way or another. Read carefully! The author isnt the only narrator of this tale of the Jazz Age. Be prepared to beam back and forward in a time-warp with each of the narrators. We learn to understand them, yet in the present time it seems that the music is the underlying cause of everyones errant ways.
