Robert Mayfair grew up in the throes of the Great Depression. After the bank sold the farm in Virginia, the family moved to live with relatives in the Northern Territory of Australia to seek a new beginning. Enter Victor Blood, a creature of guile and intrigue. When Robert’s father loses the deed to their new land to Blood over a game of chance, Robert finds himself on the move again, to the tiny island of Pulao Menara in the wilds of the Dutch East Indies, a seven day sail from Darwin.

In this second installment of the ‘David Gladstone’ Series, David is hired to investigate the Riddle mansion and certify it as ‘free of ghostly hauntings.’ A pragmatic PI, Gladstone is confident he and his partners will be in and out in no time, pocketing easy money.

Provocative, yet deadly, the mysterious siren has been the undoing for hundreds, maybe thousands of men who are seduced by her call, and David Gladstone, PI, is no different- or is he? When the famous starlet, Scarlett Syrena, comes to him with her tantalizing request, Gladstone is as enamored with the woman as he is with the case.
