Case of the Missing Husband

Watermarked PDF

Private Detective investigates the disappearance of a Tycoon. Wife is accused of murder.

My office and apartment are located on the second floor above a bar called Legs, and I was reviewing my life with the help of three fingers of single malt when she walked in. She was a knockout, from her black hat, coffered hair and supple lips, to her long silky legs. Everything about her shouted “money.” Her hat cost more than a month’s pay. “Are you the private eye?” she said. Her voice matched her looks, soft, cultured and silky.

For those readers who have not read the first book, “Sum Yung Gye: Elf Detective,” there are a few points that I'd like a new reader to know. In the not too distance future, scientists feared a worldwide pandemic and feverishly worked on a serum that not only would vaccinate people, but would prolong their lives. The testing was not complete when an outbreak of plague erupted in China. Fearing the worst and hoping for the best, doctors in America made vaccination mandatory.

What happened was a cure, but one-fourth of those receiving the serum changed. Oh, the medical gurus tried to explain the "Great Accident" away; they said deep down in our DNA elves, dwarves, orcs and trolls of mythology had always been there. Still, that didn’t explain why a small portion of people now had powers, magic powers. Those who had the ability to use magic were rare though.

The second event was that national currencies became archaic. People used International Credits or just plain credits. For financial transactions, USB sticks with credits were often used like old fashioned credit cards. Yeah, a few remote places exchanged gold and silver, but everyday commerce evolved to credits.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
