A Mick Cardby Mystery


by David Hume


  Young Mick Cardby has survived a lot of close calls in his career as the action man of the Cardby Detective Agency but he's never had a case like this one. Something is haunting Hampton Manor, and he's been hired to run the ghosts out. Or die trying. Mick Cardby is a wise-cracking hard-boiled detective of the Spade/Marlowe mold but he has more charm than both of them combined. No matter what the circumstance, he has a quick, stinging retort. In a way, he was the Shell Scott of the 30s - British-style. Ramble House hopes to publish more in the Mick Cardby series soon.
