Winner of the Scribes World Reviewer's Choice Award! Hunter Knox is an actor and amateur detective whose distinguishing trait is that he doesn't have one. In fact, no one can remember him once he leaves a room. In this adventure, he finds himself involved with a Broadway musical based on the life of Edgar Allen Poe in which one of its backers is found under the stage where the body from The Telltale Heart should be. The characters, including an eyelash viper named Arnold, a vamp called Myrna Wdnyzkoscdykyzny, and the producer's daughter, seductive Sissy Pinkus, all seem out to either murder or seduce Hunter ... or both. How he escapes some of them--and solves the crime--is zany, sexy, and full of surprises. [Genres: Mystery / Detective / Humor]
