The Agency keeps its watchful eye on the city’s evil doers: Enoch Hoffman has been in hiding for several years.
But when The Agency’s best P.I. goes missing, his
reluctant clerk Charles Unwin is thrust reluctantly into his shoes to stop the newly active Hoffman.
Knowing that the only way to get his old job back is to find his missing boss, Unwin sets off to untangle a very tangled mystery with no one to trust and only his
umbrella and a copy of The Manual of Detection.
This is a dreamy, fun mystery that is sure to please those who like their Hammett with a side of Kafka.
