Teaser Tuesday (23 November)

Tis Teaser Tuesday time!

Feeling the words, and remembering how Billie could tell you her whole life story in the glide of a note, Frank began to sing the lyrics as if he really meant them, and something happened.

The girls, dancing with their dates, began to stop mid-step and stare at him.

“Jack, we’re in trouble,” Sinatra said.

It was his one phone call. He and Ava were in the Indio police station, feeling much soberer than they had an hour before, when, whooping and hollering, they had both emptied their pistols, then reloaded and emptied them again, shattering streetlights and several store windows. Then there was the town’s single unfortunate passerby, drunk as the shooters, whose shirtfront and belly had been creased by an errant .38 slug.

    Ah, yes – Sinatra's life must make fascinating reading. (Ava's,too.) Great teasers!

  2. @ Joy: It did indeed. Funny, shocking, sometimes embarrassing. I can't believe they made Sinatra sing “The Woody Woodpecker Song” on national radio! He even had to do the laugh.
