The year is 1947, and Ms. Etta’s Fast House is the hottest nightclub this side of Chicago. The city’s fastest-talking street hustlers rub elbows here with the rich and famous, and anyone with enough cash in their wallet can drink like a king and dance the night away. Life is good—until a stranger named Baltimore Floyd strolls into town.

Handsome and charming, Baltimore is a hustler with a penchant for stirring up trouble. Everyone adores him, including Etta Adams, the matron of Ms. Etta’s Fast House. But before he can imagine settling down with one woman, Baltimore is up for a little action, which is how he hooks up with a corrupt cop’s wife. In the blink of an eye, Baltimore finds himself on trial for a crime he didn’t commit.

Now, to keep him from hanging, the patrons of Ms. Etta’s Fast House will need to heal their heartache and come together before the world beyond the Ville’s borders tears them apart.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Vivid storytelling rooted in history ultimately makes this one a winner, which includes looks at the men who first integrated the city’s police force and incoming interns at the historically black Homer G. Phillips Hospital.
