Fiction[]

FIFTY DOLLARS PER DAY, PLUS EXPENSES[]

The job sounded simple enough—pick up a statue at the Providence Museum and deliver it to a guy at the Silver Twilight Lodge. The money was good, and the dame who gave him the job seemed sincere.

Sadly, things never seem to work out that easily for Joe. Now the statue is missing, two people are dead, strange cultists are on his tail, and all clues lead to Arkham. Lady Luck can be funny that way.

He's already tried talking to the Sheriff, but that flatfoot proved to be worse than useless. Looks like it's once again going to be up to Joe Diamond to solve the case.[1]

Joe Diamond is a private investigator with a reputation for handling cases that everyone else regards as supernatural nonsense. He's thorough in his investigations, and he's no one to be trifled with. His services have been employed by the wealthy as well as those down on their luck. No case is too large, too small, too strange, or too dangerous. In his experience, things start getting nasty right when you start reaching the truth, and that's exactly where he likes to be.[2]
