Blotto & Twinks #2: Blotto, Twinks, and the Dead Dowager Duchess
1920s: At a weekend house party, a murder is announced. One of the guests has the gall to accuse Corky, so ducal scions Blotto (handsome, honorable, not the sharpest knife in the drawer) and Twinks (quite a brainy girl) have no choice but to find the real murderer and clear their chauffeur's good name. And also, you know, keep Corky from hanging and so on. Their sleuthing will take them to an opium den, a crumbling Scottish castle, and - most thrillingly - the headquarters of the evil League of the Crimson Hand.
