Since the day that Tom Middleberry was rejected by the International Federation of Magical Law Enforcement, he has never been the same. He spends his days at his detective agency, Mysterious Happenings and Conundrums, Inc., trying to eat, drink, and smoke his tragic life away - until the murders, that is. Tom doesn't give up his gluttonous habits, however - for the first time - there's a sense of purpose in his step.
When a new string of murders, accompanied by art theft, soon occur, Tom begins to fear that the federation will take over his jurisdiction and steal the only real case he's ever had. Tom moves quickly to recruit his old partner, Charles. Charles is a family man and is reluctant to join forces with his old partner due to differences in character, but when he hears there is prize money involved and a chance to go up against the federation, he readily accepts.
When the federation comes to the small Louisiana swamp town of Gourmandise, they threaten Tom and Charles with imprisonment if they don't stay away. It is unforeseen if Tom and Charles will cower to the governing body of magic, or if they can find a way to solve the murders and evade the federation.
Mysterious Happenings and Conundrums, Inc. is a fantasy mystery intended for a young adult audience. It combines dark humor, mystery, magic, and an intriguingly genuine cast that will pull you in from the start and leave you wanting for more when you're through.
