Gumshoe

241 pages

Private Eye. Private Investigator. Sleuth. Or Gumshoe? Leo Wolfson (nee Leslie Lancelot Lamb) is a New York gumshoe with a soft spot for sultry broads, heroic deeds, and bad watches.

In this three-part trilogy of Crime Noir, Leo Wolfson (nee Leslie Lancelot Lamb) goes head-to-head with mobsters, Nazis, and ruthless politicians when he succumbs to the seductive charms of several dishy Dames with questionable needs. Blasted with Roscoes, slugged with saps, copped and squeezed-Wolfson battles his way through one deadly encounter after another to defend the virtue of his latest Chickie-in-Distress.

But his biggest adversary may be his own superstitious nature because for Leo Wolfson (nee Leslie Lancelot Lamb) it is always Friday 13th.

Or is it?
