The Doll House

There was a rumor about a supposedly haunted house filled with life sized dolls. The doors to the house were never locked. Amberose Brookenwise is investigating the apparently abandoned house...PI Charlie Hampton dodges bullets trying to clear his client, Jack, of a murder rap. But might shady Jack be in jail for just cause? Fresh from Beijing come the Triad lads led by Richard the Cleaver Chang.
