Payoffs in the Cloakroom
Book Description:

Payoffs in the Cloakroomis a spellbinding follow-up to Rubenstein and Ziewacz's critically acclaimedThree Bullets Sealed His Lips.Three Bulletsbrought to life new evidence on the 1945 murder of Michigan Senator Warren Hooper.Payoffsin the Cloakroom takes up whereThree Bulletsleft off, unraveling a complex web of political corruption and dirty state politics. In the process, the authors demonstrate that Senator Hooper was murdered to prevent his grand jury testimony against republican boss Frank McKay, who was facing bribery charges.Making use of actual court proceeding, personal interviews, and newspaper accounts, and even a re-evaluation of police evidence, Rubenstein and Ziewacz tell a story that contains all the ingredients of first-class detective fiction-only in this instance, the story is based on fact. With chapter titles such as "Charlie and His Little Black Book," "I Never Dreamed Murder," and "Them Bones, Them Bones," the authors have, once again, provided a stimulating and absorbing account of one of the darker chapters of Michigan's political history.
