Gunn for Hire – Episode 25 “Phone Calls”

Telephones are funny things. It’s the only device where you get all the benefits of your personal voice, without having to look the other palook in the eye. If facy, you could be miles away. Especially when it comes to bad news. And both Grace Gunn and Irving Holt are gonna have to deliver some tough news over the phone, now that they’ve left the bloody and frightening scene at the Blackstone. They’ve found Leo Helzberg, or what’s left of him – and now it’s time to make the call. At least they won’t have to look anyone in the face.

And what about Tommy ‘Bam Bam’ Prue? Well, sometimes it pays to have more brawn than brains between your ears.

Gunn for Hire – Episode 24 “The Find”

The Great Depression is hitting most folks harder than right hook from Louis, and more often than not, leaving them three times as dizzy. It’s not an easy thing when your a hard working man or woman to set your pride aside and ask the nearest Joe or Jane for a helping hand. So when you can get a few dollars you want to keep them. And when you get a hot meal you want to keep it square in your gut. And with what Grace Gunn, Tommy “Bam Bam” Prue and Irving Holt are about to find in this hotel room, they might be taking a second look at their breakfast.

Gunn for Hire – Episode 23 “The Blackstone”

Like a dog sniffing around the butcher’s for some scraps, Grace Gunn, Tommy “Bam Bam” Prue are Irving Holt know damn well they’re getting closer to finding out what happened to Leo Helzberg, and possibly even the woman he was seeing on the side. It all comes down to knowing where to go, and fortunately for our trio – they know. They just need to get there to see what scraps might have been left behind. And just like you might suspect, the place they’re headed – just like Leo’s marriage – used to shine like one of the diamond necklaces in his shop. But now, there’s a tarnish to that silver and that diamond may have lost its lustre.

Gunn for Hire – Episode 22 “Affairs of the Hard”

Affairs are messy. They can leave a trail of sin and regret that the strongest bleach or bucket full of lye used a cleaning woman with arms as thick as your legs and a brush more abrasive than a tone deaf nightclub singer will never get out. And Grace Gunn, Tommy “Bam Bam” Prue and Irving Holt are learning more and more about the affair Helzberg’s been having – and with who – and where. The question is, how much mess did these two make, and who’s going to clean it up?

Gunn for Hire – Episode 21 “Trixie’s Apartment”

We all love going to parties. But nobody likes cleaning up afterward. Grace Gunn, Tommy “Bam Bam” Prue, Irving Holt and a cabbie who more than earned his fare just got done having a block party with some uninvited guests who were looking to make our heroes the snack tray. And now the question is, are they gonna clean up this party, or beat feet and leave it to the boys in blue. With a case to solve and no answers to questions they don’t want asked, my guess is the latter.

Gunn for Hire – Episode 20 “Violence”

Everybody loves having a good time, but one person’s good time can be another’s nightmare. Take our trio of Grace Gunn, Tommy “Bam Bam” Prue and Irving Holt. Right now, they’re not having a real whoopie time. But to the strange things from the shadows that they’re fighting? I’m betting they think this is a real stompin’ rub. But I’m gonna guess those table might turn before the night is out.

Everybody knows the phrase, ‘the things that go bump in the night.’ And for our trio, there’s going to be more than a few of these things seeking them out ton this cold December night.

Gunn for Hire – Episode 18 “The Dance”

Speakeasys in 1933 Chicago are a dying breed. In a few weeks, they won’t have to hide their dirty secrets and bathtub gin anymore. Well, the gin at least. As far as the secrets go, they’ll still be hidden and they’ll still be as dirty as the trash in a back alley after a two week garbage strike in August. But those are the secrets that Grace Gunn and Tommy Bam Bam Prue are trying to find out.

Gunn for Hire – Episode 17 “Rollercoaster”

Life can be a lot like a carnival ride – kind of entertaining, but most of the time you just go in circles. Of course, a lot depends on which ride you choose. A ferris wheel is nice, an even balance of highs and lows, with some nice views in between. And if you’re lucky you get someone special to sit in the car with you for the ride. Then of course, some of us choose the roller coaster. It moves fast, then slow. Makes you laugh and scream at the same time – balanced between moments of sheer joy and abject terror.
