Tracking kidnappers from NYC to the UK is hard enough. But a detective who thinks he’s seen it all will need help from elves, fairies, and an all-seeing eye when he goes hunting for Unusual Suspects.
Sal Viveo, a New York cop with a Scowl™ for every occasion, must track his kidnapped girlfriend through the streets of Manhattan; in the ports of Southampton, UK; along the rivers up to Liverpool; and finally across the Irish Sea to Dublin.
All the while hot on the trail of the notorious psychopath (and castle-dwelling murderer) Marek Kazimierz, aka “Commie Kazi.”
Along the way, Sal gets help from his friends in the London Underground. Not the subway system, but the local elf, giant, and fairy community.
A group that includes a beautiful witch with astounding powers (who’s also happens to be a wizard in the kitchen), the mysterious Mistress Shesheben Schildwächter.
(Did we mention there’s also an all-seeing eye that floats about in a glass orb and has the ability to foretell the future? Or a tough woman warrior protected by clamshell armor?)
Sal must save his girlfriend, Aileen, before time runs out and she’s dead forever!
But will he and his Lord of the Rings dropouts have what it takes to defeat Commie Kazi’s army—whose ranks consist of Wanderbeasts, Goblitweens and Laxshi? You know, all the Unusual Suspects.
Perhaps they can, but only if Sal himself can conjure up some surprisingly powerful magic of his own!
Join Sal and his compatriots (of all shapes and species) on a journey filled with love, loss, and little elf-like creatures dressed in children’s designer clothing, in Carl S. Plumer’s fourth novel, Unusual Suspects.
