When things get strange, Hudson Drake is the ladies’ most wanted Dick.
In the tradition of smutpulp detective fiction of the 1930s, ’40s and ’50s comes The Hudson Drake Mysteries.
A terrifying event during World War I left Hudson Drake with a bizarre and lustful curse. Treating the burden as an advantage, Drake uses his sexual prowess and detective skills to crack the trickiest cases. When the police can’t help and the story is too crazy to believe, Hudson Drake is California’s only hope.
In this episode, Drake is hired to find a gorgeous woman’s missing brother. The disappearance seems to be linked to other crimes – a mutilated body surrounded by odd symbols and the theft of ancient grimoires from the secret library of The Way. The case drags Drake into the underbelly of the occult as he tries to stop a powerful killer – or monster – from striking again. With a sexy cast of characters, it’s a good thing Drake plays just as hard as he works.
