Elixir of the Incas
Cover in category: 'Fiction' > 'Historical'
With his junior partner, Daniel Baron, two years younger, he forms an act--Baron and Brannigan--Song and Dance, and they begin their quest for fame on the vaudeville circuits. They mix with talented acts, willing showgirls, colorful song-writers, and meet many of the famous personalities of the fabulous Gilded Age, including John L. Sullivan, Victor Herbert and Tony Pastor. And each finds love but discovers that love, like life, seldom follows the path chosen.
The question is, can Billy's relentless thirst for fame, wealth and respect conquer the calamities that befall him--lost career, lost love, failed friendship, intense personal conflict, even a charge of murder?
Billy will have to use all the skills and ballyhoo that Doc Noble taught him to finally reach his goal.
