The Unfortunates by C.A. Smythe

Imagine you worked at a company in which every other week, people you knew were dying. But not just dying: being gruesomely murdered. That is the watercooler topic of the month for workers at Showbiz Studios, once the legendary home to the Hollywood silent movie era.

Meet Christian McCorkle, a thirty year-old man-child obsessed with living each day at work as if it were a TV show. Christian only wants a happy workplace for himself and the clerks he supervises in the studio's mail department.

Unfortunately, a serial killer, known as the Whistler, has found a plethora of victims on the massive studio lot-executing each one in a grisly manner. If that weren't enough, a secret cult holds meetings on the premises; ghosts walk the corridors; and Christian's least favorite employee, the always-tardy Mu-Chin Chin, may be a spy for the evil head of Human Resources.

It's up to Christian and his employees, who call themselves The Unfortunates , to tackle these sinister goings-on before one of their own falls victim to one of the various maniacs who threaten them. Their efforts might even earn these mailroom clerks long overdue raises�if they can survive.
