About Rock Island Lines
Frank Dodge, disgruntled and desperate for a story to write about, has a hot tip: Miguel Ramirez could be one of the last surviving descendants of a brutal gangster named John Looney. Dodge concocts a plan to meet the man, and they spend an evening drinking their way across the Quad Cities.
When Ramirez is found floating in the Mississippi River the next morning, Dodge finds himself without a story and on the wrong side of a murder investigation. As Dodge and his buddy, homicide detective Brian Jefferson, go over the surprising events of the night Ramirez died, Dodge wonders if dead gangsters can keep on killing and if he’ll be the next victim.
