Murder at the Speakeasy

A fundraiser and Prohibition era whodunit.

Dutch Schultz has opened a speakeasy to give girlfriend Lu Lu a place to sing but flapper Rosie isn’t having it. You’ll dance, dine and gulp the best hooch anywhere until tempers flair, bullets rain and the law shows up. A body will fall and it doesn’t look like the Charleston did it.
Whodunit and why?
