Publisher's Summary

What's more fun than a mystery? A mystery novella, that's what! Meet Oissan Mac BrĂ¡daigh - Brady for short - a handsome, two-fisted, poetry-loving private eye with an office in the heart of Harvard Square. His assistant, Sarah Friedman, cute as pie, has a totally huge crush on Brady. His client is Edward Whiteside, an alcoholic drink-at-his-desk attorney who has hired Brady to find Rolland Toulouse, the wealthiest rock 'n' roller-cum-computer game inventor cum-author in history, who's gone missing. Whiteside needs Brady to get Rolland to the IPO for his company, MortePortal, in four days or lose the deal. Brady uses his logic to start the search, but it's Sarah's intuition and iPhone that gets them on Rolland's trail.
Following that trail leads to Rolland's dark, ominous mansion in Brookline. Here, Sarah and Brady suddenly find they've unintentionally engaged their Uber driver Connor, Nicole Donovan, a Boston cop and Brady's girlfriend, and Drago, Rolland's butler, in pursuit of the missing misanthrope. Led by Drago through the underground tunnels of Boston to Rockburyport, questions plague them: Will they or won't they find Rolland? What happens if they do? Can they get him to the IPO? And just what is going on with Drago?
Exciting, bizarre, funny, and a quick listen, anyone who likes Raymond Chandler, Carl Hiaasen, or the Firesign Theater will enjoy Brady. The Audible version is narrated by the talented Michael Larrain and the original (and often humorous) sound effects from Faux Fiction Audio make the story come alive in ways you never expected.
