Private Eye Percy Slate is in danger, he just doesn't know it yet.
When he befriends a pack of ex soldiers he feels like he's finally found where he fits; until they disclose a plan to rob a well known mob run casino and want Percy along for the ride. Percy knows what the hired guns at the Chicago Club can do, and the ragtag band of soldiers doesn't stand a chance. If the group goes through with this suicide mission, Percy could lose the only lead in a case getting colder by the minute.
Roger Carson is the charismatic leader of the group who Percy suspects knows the whereabouts of a Doctor he's been hired to find.
Percy can't risk Carson being gunned down, so he improvises a plan to rob the casino on his own. Will Roger ignore the objections from his lieutenants and go with Percy's plan, or has Percy Slate finally run out of luck? find out today at 3pm when Second Saturday Stories runs Chapter Seven of the ongoing detective series: Skeleton Unburdened.
