"Tee Morris doesn't let his readers down!"
If you enjoy scrappy dwarves not unlike Gimley from Lord
of The Rings, this book is for you. Told first person by
the main character himself, he starts by imparting how
he's sucked into a magical gateway to oblivion in his home
world during a mission to capture or destroy nine
talismans of destructive power. To his
surprise, "oblivion" turns out to be Earth in the year
1927. Hiding in a library and educating himself on the
world and language, Billi decides that the perfect job for
himself is Private Eye. Between renting himself out as a
Munchkin for parties and selling off his armor and a few
other precious belongings, he has enough to realize his
Then comes his bad luck princess in high heels, a society
girl whose mobster boyfriend was expunged by Al Capone.
She wants to know why...and the money is right. Before
long, Billi finds himself dodging G-men, courting Capone,
ticking off Moran's boys, ducking vicious society
adversaries of his client's, tracking down one of the
talismans he tossed into oblivion before him, and trying
to unravel the net of the massive cover-up over the theft
of the sword.
Tee Morris doesn't let his readers down! Not now...not in
any book of his I've read. This story will have you
rolling in laughter and groaning at the antics of a
Highland Dwarf in prohibition era America.
