The Spook Lights Affair

A Carpenter and Quincannon Mystery

The Carpenter and Quincannon Mysteries: Book #2

Description

A debutante’s missing body, murder most foul, and weird spectrallights in the fog make for a thrilling gaslight-era tale of mystery anddetection.

In 1895 San Francisco young debutantes don’t commit suicideat festive parties, particularly not under the eye of Sabina Carpenter. ButVirginia St. Ives evidently did, leaping from a foggy parapet in a shimmer ofghostly light. The seemingly impossible disappearance of her body creates aneven more serious problem for the firm of Carpenter and Quincannon,Professional Detective Services.

Sabina didn’t want to take the case, but her partner JohnQuincannon insisted it would serve as entrée to the city’s ultra rich andpowerful. That means money, and Quincannon loves the almighty dollar—which iswhy he is hunting the bandit who robbed the Wells Fargo office of $35,000.

Working their separate cases—while Sabina holds Johnoff with one light hand—the detectives give readers a tour of the city the wayit was. From the infamous Barbary Coast to the expensive tenderloin gaminghouses and brothels frequented by wealthy men, Quincannon follows adanger-laden trail to unmask the murderous perpetrators of the robbery.Meanwhile, Sabina works her wiles on friends and relatives of the vanisheddebutante until the pieces of her puzzle start falling into place. But it’s anoddly disguised gent appearing out of nowhere who provides the final clue toboth cases—the shrewd “crackbrain” who believes himself to be Sherlock Holmes.
