Chrysalis: Zac Tremble Investigates (Series One Case One)

Marc Grainger has gone missing, wife, Felicity, employs Zac to find him. This case file introduces us to Zac: thirty, gay and labouring under some pretty heavy expectations. He's watched over by Elizabeth, the secretary he inherited, along with everything else. Mrs Chan does her best to keep home for him, Matt is burning a candle, but more often, burning his fingers, and Joe thinks Zac is Frank, Zac's dearly departed father.

The Zac Tremble Case Files are a barely plausible, sometimes farcical, occasionally operatic journey through Zac's world; his highs and lows, successes and failures and the emergence of one of the most touching (and funny) love affairs in PI history (do PIs fall in love?).

Chrysalis is the first Zac Tremble Case File in the series Zac Tremble Investigates; the case files of the gay, Soho-based PI Zachary Tremble.
