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.
