Henry Wood Detective Agency by Brian D. Meeks

Henry Wood is a 50's PI.  When a gorgeous dame walks in and asks him to look for her missing father, he can't say no.  Thus begins a dangerous and mysterious journey to find out what happened to the accountant.

This is a new twist on an old favorite.  Henry is a 'Sam Slade' gumshoe with a few peculiarities.  The biggest one is that he has a portal in his closet that sends him gifts from the future.  He has to be the only man in his time that owns a DVD player. 

The mystery was a blast to figure out as well.  Just when you think you know what the mystery is, you find out you're wrong.  The clues are so obscure that I couldn't figure them out, yet it was fun watching Henry do so. 

Complete with the five families and war between the mafia and the coppers, this is a must read for  mystery fans out there.  It fits into it's genre perfectly while adding something new for readers.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
