Road Trip Blues is the title of the LaureDan movie production of their adventures on The Roaring Road. As the result of a prank designed by Louise Brooks and promoted by Douglas Fairbanks, Dan becomes a movie producer for the Famous Players-Lasky studio. Dan writes the script, Laure and Louise are working on dance choreography while Viktor becomes a stuntman and his girlfriend Evelyn gains respect as a cinematographer. Road Trip Blues gets the green light to move into production, but trouble awaits and soon the Roaring Road gang comes together again to work their disruption and mayhem upon the unknown villian - if they can find out who is the villain. Dan learns to ride the rails from Moe and Joe, old-time stage actors who believe vaudeville will make a big comeback, even as Hollywood takes over the entertainment spotlight.
Readers of The Roaring Road have become avid fans of Laure, and in Road Trip Blues, the third book in The Roaring Road series, Laure takes over the first person narration. She has come a long way since she came into Dan's life (or he jumped into her life) as a naive young woman. Laure is now a Hollywood starlet, associate producer and business owner. She doesn't just sit around and wait for help when they are under attack - against all advice she goes out to rescue Dan, during which she finds herself in another speakeasy bar-room brawl, courtesy of her pals Sven and Ole. Big Al is back, driving their private train headed up by a magnificent Pacific 2-6-4 steam locomotive. And there is lots of Duesenberg for the automobile enthusiasts. Dog lovers - Raider the Road Trip Dog has a major role as Laure's guard dog and protector.
Mayhem, sex and violence. But that was life on the edge of Prohibition. Laure and Dan unashamedly love to ravish each other (with good French Champagne and strawberries!), the villain commits violence that must be defended with violence, and the Roaring Road gang once again showcase their talents of spreading confusion and mayhem to the villain's gang.
