It's a long hot summer in 1968. After escaping Memphis with Jimmy, a ten-year-old boy who witnessed the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., P.I. Smokey Dalton hopes to start a new life in Chicago. Their new beginning is shattered by the event leading up to the Democratic National Convention, where violence and paranoia have replaced political protest. Smokey does all he can to protect Jimmy from the police and his nagging fear that a rogue FBI agent is following them. But when a neighborhood boy disappears, and the body of another is found tortured on his doorstep, Smokey knows that he cannot run any longer. Only by dividing headlong into the underside of the 1960s can he and Jimmy hope to stay alive...
