The Dark Heart of Night
by Vincent McCaffrey




Overview -
1937. A young press photographer for the Daily Mirror falls in love with a crusading reporter. There's murder before breakfast and a beer and a beating for lunch. Just don't be late for dinner or a deadline. And remember, sometimes it's not your best shot, but taking the shot you have that counts.This is Fiorello LaGuardia's New York, where Thomas Dewey battles Lucky Luciano and the mob, millions are out of work and maybe out of luck, Stalinist is set against Trotskyite and the German American Bund harbors Nazi spies.It's a time of hard bitten city editors, soft hearted molls, Seabiscuit and The Babe, when Winchell's gossip paid the bills for Hearst's newspaper empire, where a nation moved to the beat of Goodman and Gershwin, and Hepburn and Stanwyck filled our silver dreams, while Hughes and the DC-3 arose, Earhart and the Hindenburg fell, the 20th Century Limited departed and Superman arrives in the nick of time.
