It isn't Brand Name celebrity news when New York Daily Press reporter Fitz's pal who plays piano at Elaine's is murdered...
...until Ed Fitzgerald digs into it. As usual he drives his City Editor, Ironhead Matthews, crazy, this time because he has been assigned to a publisher's pet feature story about America Sail.
How can Fitz pursue the murderer when he's harassed by Ironhead and irritated cops, urged by the publisher's son Pippy to cover the Tall Ships, and lured on by an importunate beauty? The self-deprecating Fitz can only bumble on and seek advice from his mentor, the Roman philosopher Marcus Aurelius, as he pursues bloody intrigue in New York's Chinatown, in Don Flynn's A Brand X Murder.
