Harry McFry Investigates

The first chapters of Harry McFry Investigates: The Case of the Missing Family are now online. This is sure to become a blog noir classic.

“OK, ma’am – I’m listening. What exactly is the problem?” There was another pause, before she went on “Someone’s stolen my family, and I don’t know what to do.” Her voice was soft as a silk scarf – but Harry knew that it was the kind of scarf that could be pulled around your neck, tied tight and, before you knew it you were done for. He wanted to meet this woman – a dame with a silky, soft voice that hid a threat wasn’t that common in Birkenhead, and he felt a curious need to see her.

Thanks for the link. So far, a fun read.



Thanks for the chuckles.. what a great read.

"A depressing and desultory drizzle had begun," is better than "It was a dark and stormy night" for sure.



Chapters 5 and 6 have been posted. The plot thickens.

Hey, Janice! Have you ever been to Birkenhead? It's the kind of place that manages to combine a depressing and desultory drizzle with a dark and stormy night!

As Harry McFry might say - 'I'm outta here!'

Thanks for reading!
