Welcome to the city of Pilgrim's Wane, where fairy tales are warnings, legend is history, and monsters are real.
"I loved this book. I loved the perfect pace, the gritty genre homage and mix, the complex characters. In addition to anti-hero Laslo, there are terrific three-dimensional support characters. I loved the humor in almost every part of the story, the perfectly built world pictures, and yes... the monsters." - Barb Taub
America, 1920. The city of Pilgrim's Wane. The people on the street can be dangerous, the ones in the shadows even more so. Private Detective Laslo Kane is giving up. His career has robbed him of everything: his girlfriend, money, and the likelihood of reaching old age. But then a brutal murder drives a terrified investor to offer Laslo a life-changing sum of money to solve the case.
The fee could set Laslo up for the rest of his life, assuming he still has one when he's finished going up against the most dangerous crime family in the city. A trail of connected murders, mysterious payments, and a group of ghostly hitmen on Laslo's tail. He's going to need the help of his ex's parents, his unwittingly supernatural journalist friend, and the assistance of a spiritualist medium who doesn't realise he, himself, is dead, in order to crack this case.
Can Laslo survive and claim his fee, or will earning a living be the death of him?
"Impressive and elegant. The story is told with ease and an addictive natural flow. Laslo Kane may very well be my new favorite private detective." - Lynn, The Modest Verge
