New Jersey 1935: When private detective, Errol Black and his fellow agents, are protecting an Irish mobster they become embroiled in the killing of Dutch Schultz. A gunfight leaves bloody chaos.

Ten years later, Black’s past is about to catch up with him. A young woman hires Black for a seemingly routine surveillance job, former partner Dyke Spanner is shot dead and Black is drawn deeper into a violent and bloody quest.

The search for the priceless blue Tavernier Diamond throws Black into the line of fire of New York’s ruthless Tongs. To even hope to solve the mystery, Black must journey into his past where both the secret to Dyke’s murder and the clues to the hidden diamond lay.

Black Shadows is a crime thriller blending fact and fiction. In the finest hardboiled tradition, it is filled with gangsters, beautiful dames, colourful villains and red herrings.
