Disclaimer: This is all just a bit of fun.
Notes: Written for a brilliant prompt over at grimm_kink, which I used for the summary (thanks, anon!). I tried, initially, to find a "clever" title for this but drew a blank so...I hope you enjoy it!
Summary: Nick Burkhardt, Private Detective, is hired by the beautiful Juliette to find out what happened to an old lady she knew, Aunt Marie. But as he finds himself plunged into the case, he finds there's more to this Marie than first appeared. Along the way he meets a colorful cast of characters, including the wisecracking clockmaker Eddie Monroe, the copper Hank, and his Captain, Renard.
Is Juliette as innocent as she seems? Is Captain Renard just another crooked cop who can be bought with the right amount-or is there something more sinister about his motives? And what secrets is the clockmaker Eddie Monroe hiding? Most importantly, how is this all connected to Nick Burkhardt?
In this exciting adventure of the supernatural and shamuses, Nick will find his most interesting case yet: his past!
