Introducing Mike Midas

Wed 1 Dec 2004, 07:39 PM



by Ben Langhinrichs
Mike MidasSome of you have already been introduced to our new guest blogger, Mike, in Luck be a Lady Tonight, but I thought I'd best be polite about it and introduce him properly.  Mike solves mysteries, especially rich text mysteries, and he isn't afraid of anyone (except maybe Crystal).  

I've invited Mike to write about some of his most interesting cases whenever he has the time, which isn't often for a busy guy like Mike.  He swears to me that all these cases are real, and he hasn't lied to me... recently.  I'll leave it to you to be the judge.  Mike's pretty secretive, so if you want to send him fan mail, booze, or maybe even a mail order bride, just respond to his stories cases.  He'll know where to find you.  (If you want to read about Mike's most recent cases,  you can always click on his picture from the blog)

Mike's Cases So Far
Luck be a Lady Tonight - Nov. 30, 2004
Carrying Concealed - Dec. 2, 2004
Veiled Threats - Jan. 17, 2005
Sinister Sequel - May 26, 2005
Beyond Compare - July 17, 2006
Wicked Thoughts - March 12, 2008

Don't hold your breath waiting for the next installment.  Mike is all tied up with a new case, he says the pressure is killing him, so he probably won't return for a bit.  Crystal might deign to come up with something, but nobody tells Crystal what to do, so we'll just have to wait and see.
