Death Stalks the Runway
The first gritty tale from Ray Irish
Sitting at a bar drinking whiskey with an old friend, Ray Irish noticed a photographer coming to their table. Bucky had a knack for trouble but Irish had no clue that his next few days would be wrapped up in a tale of pretty models, racketeers, and cold-blooded murder.
The Ray Irish Mystery Case Files follow a hard-boiled private detective with a chip on his shoulder and a whiskey bottle in his desk drawer. Set in in the late 1940s in the rough and tumble world of his adopted hometown, Oyster City, Irish has a reputation for his short temper and hard-headed luck. He’s a relatively honest private detective that believes in honor and justice. However, his beliefs are continually tested when trying to survive in a corrupt city controlled by crooked politicians, wealthy crime lords, and colorful grafters.
Whether his case involves deadly racketeers, seductive grifters, or the wealthy and corrupt ruling elite, Ray Irish understands his fate always comes back to one thing.
He must discover the truth behind all of the lies.
