Sureluck Holmes, Private Eye

FARCE/MURDER-MYSTERY. Sureluck Holmes has decided to quit his job as a private eye and become the manager of a linoleum store. In an effort to rekindle Sureluck’s sleuthing skills, Joni Watson, his devoted secretary, urges Sureluck to join the members of the Nemesis Society at Mordred Manor to solve the murder of a fellow detective. When Sureluck arrives at Mordred Manor, he’s introduced to the Nemesis members who include a southern-belle mystery writer, a small-town sleuth from Wisconsin, a couple of British secret agents, a psychic detective, a forensic pathologist, and a Belgian investigator. But even in a house full of “mastermind” detectives, it isn’t long before the president of the Nemesis Society is murdered and the sheriff is poisoned in plain view! Luckily for Sureluck and the other sleuths, Joni has gone undercover as a nurse. With Joni’s knack for finding clues and a bit of sheer luck, Sureluck may stand a chance of solving the murders before someone else turns up dead. Or not!
