I’m sure you’ve heard about this guy. Went by the name Thomas. Tommy was one of those mooks that you could tell a fishing story to, but if the trout wasn’t in your hands, he wasn’t gonna believe a word you said. And right now, Irving Holt running up against his own Tommy – but he’s just hoping it’s not the one inside his head.
Nothing’s ever simple. And in Chicago in 1933, where the shadows grow nearly as long as the bread lines, everything is seven shades of complicated. And for Grace Gunn and Miles Pike, the paths they’re on are about to hit more twists and turns than the Monaco Grand Prix. But in a world where you swore you saw something you’ve never seen before and a black suited stranger insists you didn’t. What else would you expect?
In this issue… Young and Holt are about to get themselves set up in Denver as they begin their hunt for Reddington. But first, it’s time to make some discreet connections, and maybe get some tobacco and chocolate.
Well, we’ve got a lot of ground to cover, so we’d best see where they’re at…
You know that feeling when you go to the circus and watch the tightrope walker? That feeling in the pit of your stomach that one slip and the dangerous balancing act is over. Down she goes. Show over. You want her to make it across but each step’s an agony like learning the dame or Jake you love is stepping out to be in another’s arms. And in either case, you can’t look away.
And for Miles Pike, he walks his own tightrope, trying to balance his secret with his mission and with learning that something deeper is going on. But for Miles, if he missteps, there’s no net at the bottom of his fall.
In this issue… Young and Holt and the rest of the passengers are finally back on the train and on their way to Denver. But before they get into town, it’s time to have a few more words and say some goodbyes.
Well, they’ll soon be pulling into the station, so we’d best see where they’re at…
Tonight we’re gonna talk about some F-words. No, not the kind that would cause your mother to replace your corn flakes with soap flakes. Tonight, Irving Holt deals with his film, Grace Gunn her family, and for Bam Bam – it’s his fight. That doesn’t make things any less foul. But when your foes front, you gotta face those fears. All right, I’m finally finished.
