A former River City Police Detective. Ms. Wilder (known colloquially as “Her Royal Highness”) is now the proprietor and Chief Investigator of the Midnight Investigations Agency. And as the head of the best private detective business in River City, California, she fits her domain like an iron fist in a chain mail glove.

A one-eyed German Shepherd and former police K-9 who was wounded in the line of duty, he’s now Victoria Wilder’s constant companion.
Although the most junior member of the Midnight Agency, Jason’s been trained in the art of detection almost from birth. And he’s the only one in the business who can legitimately call the boss, “Mother”.
But even being raised by Victoria Wilder can hardly prepare Jason for what he’s in for now. What starts out as a routine missing husband case turns into a grisly homicide, and Jason must follow a trail that leads from a dilapidated old theater with a vengeful ghost through a fiery, high-rise deathtrap to an explosive, deadly confrontation in the heart of a decades old mystery. Throughout it all, Jason will need everything he’s learned in a lifetime’s worth of training in the detective business.
And a little help for Mom, of course.
