Overview

In this flashback to the first of the Hunter Knox adventures, Hunter reveals to Melonie (in bed, of course) how he became Hunter Knox and who Lorraine Who Wasn't was. It all took place, he explains, aboard the HMS Hephaestus, a ship that has sunk a dozen times while under the command of Captain Agropoulos. In it we meet such memorable characters as First Purser Thougg Pfistic and the very dead Velbig Fossage, corpse about town, who manages to get himself bludgeoned, stabbed, strangled, poisoned, shot and variously murdered including being blown up. Nearly everybody, therefore, becomes a suspect, including Lorraine Who Wasn't and the question becomes not one of Whodunit but Whodunitlast. A typically bizarre Hunter Knox mystery, which also includes the first appearance of beloved preacher T. Keenly Shureglow and his rendition of "The Heavenly Ladder."

Read an Excerpt

Melonie opened the cottage curtains by the bed so that the bright light of a harvest moon shone full upon their naked bodies. Then she raised herself on one elbow.

"So, tell me all about her," she said.

"About who?" Hunter asked.

"You know very well. And about the ship that sank a lot and about the almost lawyer ... but mostly about this Lorraine who wasn't."

"I see." Hunter nodded in recognition. "You want me to talk about the first murder case I was involved in."

"Every last detail. As the woman you're going to marry, I should be spared nothing."

"But I haven't exactly made up my mind about marriage," Hunter protested.

"But I have ... and marriage is a fifty-fifty thing. So my fifty wins. Go on. Who's this Lorraine who wasn't?"

"It's a rather long story..."

"We'll treat it as a bedtime story. You tell me some of it when we go to bed, then kiss me good night."

"When has that ever stopped at a kiss?" Hunter scoffed.

"All the more reason to be dramatic in your telling. Keep me awake for the Good-Night-Kiss-and-Whatever-May-Follow."

"Why don't we just go straight into the Whatever?"

"Because you promised me a bedtime story." Melonie pouted prettily.

Hunter shrugged. He knew he wasn't going to win. And so did she.

Besides, losing to Melonie had such nice rewards.

"Very well, as Polonius in Hamlet would say, 'Perpend ... '"
