‘Things in the Twilight’ By Alex Lorry

Fantasy about a young woman who hires a noir private eye to solve a haunting mystery. She and her lover meet in the atmospheric, romantic surroundings of a gaslit, historical park. He is an enchantingly handsome young man who will not give his name, who only meets her at twilight, who dances on rough pavement with no sound, and who has no shadow . . . the young woman urges the investigator to help her before she loses her mind.
