It’s 1964 and Smitty, Mouse, and Kelso are in their last semester of high school. These three fellows manage to get themselves into some ridiculous, bizarre, and hilarious situations—all in their pursuit of one thing. Girls.
They plot; they plan; they try so hard; they get into such trouble; they meet with so little success.
Smitty has a knack, though. If anyone manages to find romance, he’ll be the guy. Mouse is the blind squirrel who finds the occasional acorn. Kelso, poor Kelso, borders on hopeless.
Whether it’s the parish dance, a friend’s funeral, a babysitting opportunity, or a first sexual encounter, these are engaging, entertaining and sometimes ribald slices of life that will strike a chord or two…
Mark Louis and Kristy King become involved with murder when they visit Erin Blakely, a college friend of Kristy’s whom she hasn’t seen in half-a-dozen years. During their visit, Erin’s husband Pete is murdered just as Jeremy, an old college boyfriend of Erin’s, shows up, newly released from prison and claiming he is the father of Erin’s daughter Raven. Erin vehemently denies Jeremy’s paternity, accusing him of murdering her husband. Erin moves to New York, and Mark invites her to join the AWB Theatre Company. The accusation against Jeremy doesn’t stick, and he follows Erin and Raven to New York. Hoping to uncover the truth about Erin’s tangled life, Mark and Kristy decide to investigate four men from Erin’s past and present—her two college boyfriends, one of whom has fathered her daughter Raven, her late husband Pete, and Bob Collins, a new acquaintance from New York.
After a catastrophic invasion of elementals from "the other side" kills his grandfather and leaves him crippled, Oliver Muncing vows to follow in his grandfather's footsteps and dedicates his life to investigating other-worldly phenomena.
Kristy King, 26-year-old actress and member of New York City’s AWB Theatre Company, barely misses being struck by a hit-and-run driver while on a visit home to Brunton, Pennsylvania. A week later, her brother is killed by a hit-and-run driver. She relies on her lover and fellow actor, Mark Louis, to help get her through the terrible loss. In the process, Mark learns more about Kristy’s past than he ever wanted to know. An old beau of Kristy’s, Richard Sutor, enters the mix. Mark begins to suspect that all is not what it seems in Kristy’s hometown. His off-the-books investigation alienates both Kristy and her mother. Kristy moves out of his apartment, angered by his insinuations and the intrusion into her family’s private life. Can Mark convince Kristy that his suspicions are worth following up? Is he even certain himself that he hasn’t caused a lot of unnecessary turmoil? The final family secret of all, though, gives Mark a shock he will never forget.
