About the Book

Since his inglorious death by choking to death on goulash in his cell at Sheriff Neverfine’s county jail the influence of Red Fox, the insidious chief of espionage in Indiana during World War Two has waned…or, are his covert activities continuing through the sinister efforts of two underlings, Horst and Gerhard, operating under cover at the Millsaap Flour Mill? Complicating this obscure, unsettled scene a neighbor to the Prudely mansion suddenly remembers seeing flashing lights emanating from the tower of the Prudely mansion during the recent war years. Also, a strange form, labeled THE TATTERBITTY, is discovered in the mansion tower. Should this new information cause any concern for law abiding citizens in Marston? Sheriff Neverfine assigns detectives Sam and Howie to investigate and put these new revelations to rest. Will these two professional sleuths uncover any ominous evil actions either current or during the past war years? You, the reader, are now a participant in this intense investigation. You will assist Sheriff Neverfine and detectives Sam and Howie as they attempt to determine if the discovery of THE TATTERBITTY and the sudden revelation of lights flashing from the Prudely mansion tower during the previous war years represent any imminent danger to the citizens of Marston.
