Runes from the dead
Mario Zona, owner of the Silver Ring night club, was frightened. He thought he was going to be killed, so he called Rufus Gaunt, a private investigator.
Meralda Grey, the beautiful night club singer; her fiancé Michael Lorimer; Zona’s secretary Wolfe Lanel and the pretty cigarette girl Geraldine are all involved in this vintage Peter Cheyney story of murder in London’s West End.
During the short period of fifteen years Peter Cheyney managed to write more than thirty books. Resulting in sales which run into millions of copies.
Cheyney’s stories are about the grim, the slick, the seductive and the amusing – just true to life as Cheyney knew it. You will find plenty of strong meat, well spiced with humour in good measure. Detectives, gamesters, thieves, and hard-living beauties makes a glorious story of excitement, humour, suspense, crossing and double-crossing.
A young woman, almost just a girl, is found dead in the town wizard’s shop. It looks like suicide but she has scratched down some runes as she died – a message to Turik the wizard. With his friends Jendra and Pym he sets out on town to find who’s behind a series of deaths among the young women – they were all forced into the labour of night fairies.
In the series of The Wizard of Moorport, we get to follow the old town wizard Turik, his sword wielding friend, the half elf Jendra Andoral and the faun Pym, how runs errands and do odd jobs for the old wizard.
This is a short fantasy/mystery story set in the town of Moorport, an independent township in Eeyr. It is run by the Portmaster and is considered a safe and lawful part of the world. But danger still lurks in the cobbled alleys and Turik the Wizard takes on the task of protecting his people.
