About this title


"Part noir, part monster punk, it's like nothing I've encountered before. Full of unforgettable characters in a unique setting, the Stein and Candle Detective Agency will appeal to fans of urban fantasy adventure. It's an unforgettable read." - Vicki Keire, bestselling author of the Angel's Edge and Chonicles of Nowhere series. Mort's a hardboiled ex-paratrooper turned two-gun shamus. Weatherby's a fourteen-year-old wiz kid and heir to the greatest family of European sorcerers. Together, they form The Stein & Candle Detective Agency, employing a small arsenal and a deep knowledge of matters arcane and bizarre to solve cases nobody else would dare touch.

This time, Weatherby and Mort have cases that will take them from a vampire's decaying mansion to the mob-controlled streets of Havana. They'll take on roadside attractions gone wrong, hordes of the living dead, and ride against the Devil himself in a high speed car race to the death.

They'll need brains and brawn to survive in a world where horror, action and hardboiled noir come together in a cataclysmic mix!

More Praise for Stein & Candle:

"This young author paints with vivid colors, a sly sense of humor, and a broad knowledge of history, particularly pertaining to the occult. He mixes fictional characters, folklore, and historic figures with a strong sense of understanding the significance of each." - Leo F. Mcelroy
