Mister Frank aka Frankie Four Fingers


17th April 2018 – What the Frank is this Cotton Club carry on?

Frank’s getting tetchy.

He’s been locked away in the sweat shop for months now, relentlessly brewing moonshine as demand grows and his gang of trusty stooges ferry the elixir across the county. Times are hard, people are dry and Frank’s special brews are all that is keeping folk going…..

Silent Joe is no help, he’s just, well… silent. Some right hand man, eh?

And to make it all worse that goddam canary had the bright idea of putting on a show…. A show? Right here? Bringing all these guys and dames right to Frank’s front door. As if Frank isn’t busy enough. A speakeasy? Right here? Those goddam boozehounds will drink Frank dry!

In only a matter of weeks, this place will be overrun… people singing, dancing and most of all drinking! Frank has been working tirelessly for years to build up one of the most notorious bootlegging mobs around. And now he’s risking it all…

He needs to get this right, he just has to…… Frank is feeling the pressure. Will he deliver……?
