THE EYE OF QUANG CHI
Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to announce the first in
a brand new mystery series by prolific New Pulp writer, Fred Adams Jr. “The Eye of Quang Chi,” is the first book in
the Smith Brothers mystery chronicles.
In the early 1900s San
Francisco tycoon Reginald Smith had all a man could
want. His trading business, the Oriental Trade Consortium, had become a
financial empire and the beautiful Ling-Tao wife. Then his fortune changed when
his beloved died in childbirth, giving him two sons, Ming and Hong. The problem
being they were co-joined twins, forever tied to each other by an accident of
Smith hired them a brilliant tutor who convinced him to stop
sheltering his sons from the public. He argued that they would only survive the
cruelty of the world by embracing it, but becoming as strong and clever as
their father. Thus began their true education and upon his death, Reginald
Smith left his vast wealth and influence to his amazing sons.
Now a strange mystery plagues the city’s fabled Chinatown. A mysterious gem from China has been
stolen and believed to be in the city. Pitting their unique intellects and vast
resources, the Smith Brothers take on the case to ward of a bloody tong war.
But can even they solve the mystery of the Eye of Quang Chi before the streets
ran red with blood?
“Ever since signing on with Airship 27 Productions, Fred
Adams Jr. has provided us with some of the most original, exciting and unique
novels to bear the New Pulp label,” applauds Airship 27 Productions’ Managing
Editor, Ron Fortier. “Adams is a retired
college writing teacher and has proven he knows how to tell a story. What has
blown us all away is the strange twist and turns he creates, keeping his
readers off-balance and providing them with new, fresh experiences. Believe me,
The Eye of Quang Chis is no exception.”
Joining the talented writer in presenting this first Smith
Brothers adventure is well known British artist Morgan Fitzsimons, who provided
both the ten interior illustrations and the colorful, evocative cover. “Morgan
is a treasure,” Fortier adds. “Her research in the time and setting of the
story was impeccable and she truly has a flair for the romantic. She was the
perfect choice for this title.” Award
Winning Airship 27 Art Director Rob Davis put it all together with his deft
designing touch and thus offers up one of the company’s most original and
intriguing packages. Fortier concludes enthusiastically with, “We think mystery
fans are going to love with the Smith Brothers.”
