The Lane Fleming collection of early pistols and revolvers was one of the best in the country.
When Fleming was found dead on the floor of his locked gunroom, a Confederate-made Colt-type percussion. Enough at any rate to engage Colonel Jefferson Davis Rand—better known just as Jeff—private detective and a pistol-collector himself, to catalogue, appraise, and negotiate the sale of her late husband's collection. There were a number of people who had wanted the collection.
The question was: had anyone wanted it badly enough to kill Fleming? And if so, how had he done it?
Here is a mystery, told against the fascinating background of old guns and gun-collecting, which is rapid-fire without being hysterical, exciting without losing its contact with reason, and which introduces a personable and intelligent new private detective. It is a story that will keep your nerves on a hair trigger even if you don't know the difference between a cased pair of Paterson.

He takes pictures of the anonymous crowds and finds a pleasing invisibility in the impersonal. Automatic doors. He meets a girl, Kumiko, and hopes he can be remade.
These details are released almost grudgingly, like bad memories unwillingly recalled, so that it is with a sense of a mystery unravelling that the story opens up. Our range is outdoors so please dress appropriately. We will cover pistol safety, concealment options, Ohio law, and much more!
