Leonard Lime is a jaded optimist. A sometimes gambler. A weekend dad and a man with a peculiar talent.
He’s also co-partner of Lime And Hattridge Post Life Adjustments – A specialist agency that work out of London and have branches in Sydney, New York, Hong Kong, Dublin and Belfast.
The PLA specialize in outsourcing for unique cases. Cases requiring unique talents. Talents that entail using totemic artifacts to channel helpful individuals. It just so happens that those individuals are, well, dead.
Every staffer at the PLA has a few handy totems on retainer. Leonard’s no different. One of his favorites is a piece of prehistoric bone that he keeps tied around his neck for emergencies. It comes in handy when things get rough. Particularly when dealing with folks like Paul Mthembu and his associate Mickey Taylor, notorious people traffickers and all round nasty chappies.
Leonard’s been looking into them for Victor Naidoo, a man who’s daughter went missing on a holiday to her familial home in South Africa two years ago, and who has recently been identified in a London brothel. By Victor’s brother no less, but that’s another story.
Nosey Leonard got a bit too close to the dirt and now Paul and Mickey have Leonard tied up. It’s happening below right now.
Let’s see how it plays out.
