Synopsis

It's not surprising that a case
that begins with a killing in a faux Chinatown and ends in a séance would include
a generous helping of farce. But not even Harry Reese--a man well used to a life
only loosely tethered to reality--is prepared for what he encounters that autumn in 1902.  Before it's over, he'll meet cricket
ranchers, vaudeville artistes, white slavers, morality crusaders, circus roustabouts,
and wayward Utopians, and frequently become sidetracked by the need to rescue
his loved ones from jail, or the clutches of a ruthless tong. Is it any wonder
the case was put in motion by the machinations of his dear wife Emmie?

Finding himself misplaced in the 21st century, Robert Bruce Stewart has opted to retire to what he hopes will be a more congenial era for a person of his sensibilities by means of fiction writing. Meanwhile, his temporal self lives with his wife and cat in a small-town hermitage in western Massachusetts where he spends his idle hours tending to the needs of tadpoles and keeping his ill-mannered bamboo grove in check.
