Fair Play’s a Jewel

Harry Reese Mysteries

Book 5
Street Car Mysteries

 On a hot July morning in the summer of 1903, insurance investigator Harry Reese learns his secretive wife Emmie is planning a trip to Portland, Maine. Could she be heading for an assignation with the mysterious stranger who called for her at the apartment? Or is she instead leading Harry into yet another befuddling murder mystery peopled by a plethora of peculiar characters, with herself once again acting as befuddler-in-chief? 

Before this case is solved, our heroes will have gained a knowledge of cockney rhyming slang, 17th-century cant, and the mating habits of the American eel; confronted a snooping Pinkerton of fictional origin; come to terms with a pirate publisher; and waded through a veritable ocean of false identities.

About the author

Meanwhile, his temporal self lives with his wife and cat in a small-town hermitage in western Massachusetts where he spends his idle hours tending to the needs of tadpoles and keeping his ill-mannered bamboo grove in check.
