Humbug on the Hudson
Part mystery, part parody, Humbug on the Hudson is the first Harry Reese short story. In August 1900, Harry is sent upstate to help investigate a major fire. But he has a second mission: to make sure the investigation doesn’t uncover any shady doings that “the right people” would prefer kept quiet. Harry encounters a variety of surprises, not the least of which involves his wife, Emmie.
