Thanks to Marlon James, the advisor on this project, for dealing with absurd amounts of my whining.


Meet Edgar Jones, the fast-talking, woman-wooing septuagenarian with a penchant for sticking his nose where it doesn’t belong. But when a resident at his nursing home nearly dies under suspicious circumstances, Edgar’s the only one asking the tough questions. Who pushed Frank, the depressed resident with a secret, over the edge? What’s Maria, the brunette who likes to water her plants with gin, hiding? When is Edgar’s daughter coming to visit? And why the hell isn’t there anything better on TV? Noir meets nursing home as Edgar struggles to find some answers—and to keep those answers from slipping away.
