An Audience of Corpses
Apprentice P.I. Jack Hornby had only just buried his friend and mentor, stricken with grief and contemplating his future. Sitting alone in the office they once shared, he is accosted by an eccentric woman in desperate need of help. Reluctantly, he agrees. But a case of suspected infidelity turns out to be so much more when his target winds up dead in the middle of a grisly scene.

In a case where nothing makes sense and no one is what the seem, Jack's only ally is his old mentor's peculiar yet alluring niece, the former secretary from the now-defunct detective agency.
