Violence lurks beneath the posh exterior of Henry Carson's secluded estate. Uncle Henry's vast fortune has made him the target of blackmail and threats. After Carson's midnight murder, rookie-sleuth Jim "Sherlock Jr." Landis arrives at the manor to investigate and finds a host of possible killers awaits him. Local gumshoe Berton Churchill joins the investigation, and the two detectives have their hands full, sorting though all the suspects. Is it the maid?... the lodger upstairs?...the brash chemist on the verge of a great discovery?...the heiress with a forbidden lover?...her cross-dressing, second Uncle who no one will talk about?...the shadowy garden prowler?...or perhaps one of the two investigating detectives?
In the grand tradition of Agatha Christie, The Dark Hour is a twisting, gripping mystery-thriller as elegant as it is smart.
