Midnight Catch

Coming in September--

Midnight Catch, a story of rum-running, love, and murder at the intersection of Prohibition and the Great Depression.

Mix the following....
  • a 13-year-old boy enthralled with a new phenomenon called radio
  • a failed speculator trying to keep one step ahead of a killer
  • an itinerant folksinger and labor agitator
  • a veterinarian with a weakness for helping friends in trouble, and
  • a New Orleans heiress with a risky sideline
Stir well and you have the makings of a tall, cool murder mystery.

The latest offering from NEMO Productions.
