a Case of Eager Heirs
A short story and a Tale of the Verin Empire…
Teddy Grabeley has a problem: he can’t pay the assassin he hired to kill his uncle.
The assassin slit the old man’s throat… but somehow Teddy’s uncle still isn’t dead. Running short on funds without his premature inheritance, Teddy hires Gus Baston to unravel a mystery that has left both nephew and assassin stumped.
Set in the world of Gedlund and The Great Restoration, this is another of Gus’s unique misadventures as a private detective in a world that mixes elements of Victorian culture and high-fantasy.
