1926 – Dan and Laure thought acquiring Napa/Sonoma wine and whiskey to transport back to Chicago would be difficult, but that was easy compared to their new troubles. During a Hollywood visit they meet motion picture stars including Louise Brooks and Douglas Fairbanks. They play a prank at a garden party causing intended and unintended consequences. Louise and Laure appear similar enough to be mistaken for cousins and Laure accepts a dancing role in the 1926 production of The Great Gatsby movie. Dan is made an offer to become a movie producer while a movie star is intent on becoming Laure’s lover and Louise makes plans to seduce Dan.

A powerful, ruthless and unknown enemy plots to kidnap Laure, but who is it, and why? Their private executive railroad car carrying wine and spirits is hijacked, recovered and hijacked again. A nearly 2,000 mile train chase keeps Dan and Laure scrambling to stay a step ahead until it ends in Cherryvale, Kansas. Who is the mysterious killer disguised as a messenger boy, and is he friend or foe? Dan and Laure learn to use trickery and misdirection to con their enemies and find a small circle of new friends with talents for mischief, distraction, diversion and mayhem.

The question "What Could Possibly Go Wrong?" is often answered with "Oh, Just About Everything".
