A Ken Knoll Architectural Mystery
Ken Knoll (“Cannoli”) is an average mid-level architect, not a detective. That is, until his intern Edison returns from a routine job inspection of one of the firm’s buildings with startling news. Edison found a dead homeless man at the construction site, and Ken is aghast to learn Edison has taken it upon himself to remove the body and load it into one of the firm’s trucks. Before Edison could spirit the body away and dispose of it, a couple of the firm’s top brass showed up for a tour and Edison wasn’t able to put his plan in motion. And then Edison informs Ken that another architect absconded with the truck, only to have it break down on the road, eventually ending up in the shop. When Ken finally catches up with the truck, the body has disappeared.
Now Ken must track down the body while at the same time try to keep his superiors from finding out, balance relationship trouble with his girlfriend Mary, sympathize with fellow architect Gwen who’s having a rough time, and satisfy a demanding client with grandiose ideas of the perfect chocolate shop. Surely nothing else can go wrong Like another dead body . . .
