This breakneck page turner combines classic crime thrillers with plenty of laughs, secretive magic and fantastical characters
September 2021 Debut of the Month
In this murky world Lester and Rita become detectives for hire. Their first case involves two vampires, a stolen jade mask and a baron mysteriously drowned in vat of lemonade. Rita and Lester will need to learn fast if they want to survive in a world where appearances are endlessly deceptive.
Rita Wong leads an ordinary existence sipping hot chocolate in Morecambe until one winter morning a dragon called Lester Thyme crosses her path. He takes her to Neon City where the streets are dark with magic, crime, werewolves and vampires.
This breakneck page turner combines the atmosphere of classic hard-boiled crime thrillers with plenty of laughs, secretive magic (you won’t find any wands in this story!) and fantastical characters. Readers can look out for the clues along with Lester the Dragon as he discovers that life is easier with more friends when he enlists the help of Rita Wong to help him crack the case.
