Some reviews for All the Gin Joints:

In All the Gin Joints, Turnbull puts his hero smack in the middle of the filming of Casablanca, including vivid recreations of sitting at a table in the Warner Bros. commissary, shopping at a famous menswear shop, sailing as a guest on Bogey’s own sailboat, and an extended stay in the Bogarts’ guest bedroom. This story has romance, mystery, adventure, nostalgia, history, celebrity, suspense, and surprises….all woven into a delightful, fast-moving tale that immerses the reader in the fantasy world of making fantasy seem real and the real seem like fantasy.

If you’re one of those people who loves old Hollywood, can rattle off obscure (to the uninitiated) facts about the stars and studios and appreciates endearing characters in an exciting read, “All the Gin Joints” is the book for you. Now, I’m not a big fan of Bogey – but I think I’m changing my mind after spending some glorious time with him and all of his Warner Brothers buddies (so much more fun than the MGM crowd). As always, Martin’s research is flawless. And seriously, I can’t wait for the next installment.

All of the Gin Joints is Martin Turnbull’s newest release and although it is not a regurgitation of his marvelous Garden of Allah series, it feels like a sequel that every fan craves. The new characters evoke the memorable heroes (and villains) of his earlier books and returns the reader to the familiar macrocosm of the Hollywood Golden Age. This time around, the story focuses on New Yorker Luke Valenti and his subsequent exploits living and working in Hollywood, first with a group of like-minded outcasts and later with Humphrey Bogart himself.
