 Step into the hardboiled world of Rick Walker, a private investigator with a penchant for scotch, dames, and magic. With reluctant help from a foul-mouthed demon, a nervous young diviner, and a fiery ex-girlfriend, Rick navigates his way through several cases, only to discover that they are all connected in some way.
In "Dark City, Dark Magic", brother of millionaire Frederick Billingsly is found dead, but was it suicide or magic-assisted murder? Frederick hires private eye Rick Walker to answer the question. With the help of the foul-mouthed demon, Beluosis, Rick takes the case. The question is - will he be able to solve the case and pay his rent on time?

In "Dames and Diviners", Walter Prescott is told that it was heart attack that killed his roommate, Jack Carradine, but he thinks otherwise. So Walter seeks outside help - and ends up with the magic-using, scotch-loving private investigator Rick Walker. The two embark on a journey for answers that leads them to a discovery that could mean the end of both of them.

Finally, in "Angel in the Shadows", life has gotten complicated for Rick Walker. Hiding from it all behind bottles of scotch, he finally emerges to take on a case for an old acquaintance. But the case may turn out to be his deadliest yet. With the help of an odd assortment of companions, Rick confronts his demons, both figurative and literal. With surprises around every corner and danger lurking in the shadows, Rick might need more than his charm to get out of this one alive.

Fantasy Noir collects the "Mystery, Murder, and Magic" series together. So grab a glass of scotch (neat, with just a splash of water) and follow Rick through all three cases.

Readers Love the Hunt for Jack Reacher Series and Diane Capri:

"I 'stumbled' on this title and was attracted to it as I am a Jack Reacher fan. Loved the story and the author's writing style. Couldn't wait for more so I purchased [Raw Justice] and want more Jennifer Lane - please?! Fatal Distraction is also on my Kindle to read list!"

"I have been a Reacher fan for years and was excited when I heard of Diane Capri's take on 'Finding Reacher'. 'Don't Know Jack' is a good companion to Child's Reacher books and recaptures the flavor of the Reacher mystique. I am waiting anxiously for the next book in the series and the next and the next, and so on."

"All Child fans should give it a try!"

Lee Child gives this series and Diane Capri two thumbs up!

“Full of thrills and tension, but smart and human, too. Kim Otto is a great, great character. I love her.” Lee Child, #1 Worldwide Bestselling author of Jack Reacher novels.
