What could possibly stand up to Kris Nelscott's first Smokey Dalton mystery? Her second one. Smokey has escaped Memphis one step ahead of the people who want to find him and his adopted son Jimmy. But Chicago in the aftermath of Martin Luther King's assassination and on the eve of the 1968 Democratic Convention might not prove to be a whole lot safer. When the Chicago cops won't investigate a series of child murders, Smokey takes on the job of bringing the killer to justice the hard way.

Smoke-Filed Rooms is a beautifully-written historical mystery, brimming over with tension, suspense, and characters who will live with you long after you've finished reading.

Loved every word of all the Smokey Dalton novels so far. I hope the author will write more.

This period of our history has been so revised by time, and it's a delight to read the real story. (I'm old enough to remember the truth.) Smokey Dalton is a complicated person who is only now learning the truth about his inner self. You can feel his need to know and his fear of what he will find out there in the world of the Democratic Convention. The mystery is really good, and Smokey is a first-class sleuth.

This is the first one in the series I liked well enough to buy two more (one at a time, as I finished one, I bought the next). The author does a very good job capturing the turmoil that was occurring during the sixties. There are complex characters and interesting mysteries. I look forward to reading the next in the series.

I loved it! As a native of Chicago and a teenager during the time period, it bought back memories good and bad of the times. And the characters were very realistic. An enjoyable read, thanks!

It takes you into the turbulent 60s. The book is written well written and takes you into a world that few writers go. Definitely a good read.
Kris Nelscott's "Smoke Filled Rooms" continues the story of Smokey Dalton, an unlicensed black PI trying to make his way in the turbulent 1960s. This novel picks up shortly after the end of the events in her previous novel, "A Dangerous Road". Smokey and his young charge, 10-year old Jimmy, have taken up residence in Chicago. Smokey is trying to keep a low profile in order to protect Jimmy, who witnessed the murder of Martin Luther King in Memphis. But a low profile is difficult to keep as political activists descend on Chicago for the 1968 Democratic National Convention and an old evil from Smokey's past returns to dog him. To keep Jimmy alive, Smokey has to get into the thick of the action and do some serious detecting.
Very good book.
