A wealthy Hawaiian hotelier is chewed to death by sharks - in his penthouse office.
A traveling salesman goes missing - in a shady New England town full of monstrous fishmen.
A new casino gets supernaturally good luck in Vegas - thanks to ancient Egyptian magic.
These are the cases taken by Morton Candle and Weatherby Stein. Mort’s a hardboiled ex-paratrooper turned two-gun shamus. Weatherby’s a fourteen-year-old wiz kid and heir to the greatest family of European sorcerers.
They met in the fury of WWII, when Weatherby and his parents were being held hostage by the Third Reich and Mort’s squad was sent to bust them out. Now they’re a pair of private detectives specializing in the paranormal, the supernatural and the just plain weird.
But sometimes, arcane evil goes back a long way and a dangerous force from deep in the past of Stein’s family is about rise. Weatherby and Mort will put everything they have into stopping it - and it might not be enough.
