Overview

The Markhat Files features three of Markhat's most dangerous cases, including.

The Cadaver Client
Markhat is hired by a guilty ghost to make amends to the wife and child he abandoned a decade ago-but is the dead man really dead, and is he seeking his estranged wife not out of guilt, but out of his insatiable desire to deal out a final, cruel act of vengeance?

The Mister Trophy
All the finder Markhat wanted was a beer at Eddie's. Instead he gets a case that will bring him face to fang with crazed, blood-craving halfdead, a trio of vengeful Troll warriors, and Mama Hog's unpredictable brand of backstreet magic. Oh, and the possible resurgence of the Troll War that nearly wiped humanity out a decade ago. Through Rannit's narrow alleys and mean streets, Markhat runs to stay one step ahead of disaster, all the while ignoring Mama Hog's dire warnings that this time, the head that rolls could be his own!

Dead Man's Rain
Markhat is a finder by trade, charged with the post-war task of tracking down missing sons and fathers who'd fought in the War but remained missing after the Truce. But now it's ten years on after the war, and about all he's finding is trouble. This time, trouble comes in the form of a rich widow with a problem. Her dearly departed husband, Ebed Merlat, keeps ambling back from the grave for nocturnal visits. Merkhat saw a lot during the war, but he's never seen anyone, rich or poor, rise from the grave and go tromping around the landscape. But for the right price, he's willing to look into it. As a storm gathers and night falls, Markhat finds darker things than even murder lurk amid the shadows of House Merlat.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The Cadaver Client has the same world-building, sarcastic humor, and good pacing that made the previous stories in this series so much fun to read. It's good to know that Mr. Tuttle is still on a roll."
—Mrs. Giggles

"The Mister Trophy is an excellent fun romp. Sign me up for the Markhat love boat at once. Where's my T-shirt?"
—Mrs. Giggles

"Markhat plays a huge part of my adoration for these stories. He’s the fatalistic, funny detective, the one with the unique perspective on the world. He makes me laugh, he makes me think, and most of all, he makes me care."
—Book Utopia Mom on Dead Man's Rain

Meet the Author

Frank Tuttle is a former private detective who turned to writing because writing seldom involves severe beatings delivered by ham-fisted thugs in dark, windswept alleys. A native of Oxford, Mississippi, Frank has often communed with the ghost of William Faulkner, who wishes Frank would quit pestering him for a glowing endorsement of his books. By combining his love of film noir detectives and fantasy novels, Frank has created a world where murder, magic, and mayhem live side by side with spells, ghosts, and of course trouble. The Markhat Files is his fifth published title.
