by R. J. Hore

With no clients in the office in two weeks, Randy is bored and Bertha is nagging. Then three cases walk in the door all at once. First, an impoverished widowed goblin who doesn’t believe her husband committed suicide. It must be murder, only the minions of the Com P.S. have already closed the case. Then there is the well-off gnome who had a battered old horn stolen from his shop. Lastly, a stuck-up wealthy and obnoxious elf whose wife was kidnapped, but he is only worried about a cheap missing necklace.

The usual pressure on Randy to solve the cases while trying to avoid getting involved with some serious nasties sounds simple enough. Did we mention shadowy figures with scythes or the seductive crime bosses?
