Description

Jack Lime, amateur private eye, solves mysteries for his high school classmates in exchange for future favors. He stops at nothing -- except for an occasional bout of narcolepsy -- to crack three seemingly stand-alone cases while dodging bullies, Principal Snit and tireless reporter KC Stone. In the tradition of 1950s noir but with a thoroughly modern hero, these stories -- shot through with Lime's acid wit -- are best served with a root beer float.
