A SAD SONG SINGING by Thomas B. Dewey



Pub Date: Sept. 13th, 1963
Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Mac"" is the detective and his client is Cress Darden looking for Richie, the folk singer with whom she had lived ""like married"". It's a wandering life that the singers lead and Dewey shows a lot of it -- the originals, the fakes, the just beat. The fact of no permanent address for the balladeers attracts the crowd that has something hot to move quietly and this time it's money. A fast and muscular ""folk"" tale set to folk music.
