Mike Hammer meets Grimm's Fairy Tales in a world where nymphs walk darkened streets, imps are slave traders, and gnomes are elite hackers. In Jamie Sedgwick's new mystery, Murder in the Boughs, Hank Mossberg is a hard-boiled San Francisco detective who must race against time to rescue a kidnapped girl, expose a ring of "pixie dust" dealers, and find the killer of a high-elven San Francisco kingpin.
Hank’s troubles begin when he stumbles onto a briefcase full of the illicit drug known as pixie dust. He finally has the evidence he needs to bring down the notorious Kaiser gang. Then the gang's leader is murdered and the pixie dust disappears. Hank is hot on the trail of the killer when he gets an urgent call from a desperate woman whose daughter has been abducted, only the kidnapper is no ordinary criminal and even Hank's unique skills might not be enough to bring the girl home.
