Created by Tim Wohlforth
JIM WOLF is a P.I. who lives aboard a boat moored at Oakland's Jack London Square marina. He was adopted at an early age, and it made him kind of a loner. No wonder he became -- yes, you guessed it, a "lone wolf" private eye.
Jim's caseload is as varied as it is fascinating, including being hired to find 30 members of a religious cult that sometimes disappear -- and prevent them from disappearing for good.
His best friend Lori runs Big Emma's, a Victorian bar. In "The Breath of Death" she leads Wolf out of his element and into the High Sierras to try and help her uncle, John Friendly. His first conversation with his client starts like this:
"And you're Jim, the private investigator. Thanks for coming. I didn't know who to turn to. I thought I needed your help in finding evil. But it proved to be a false alarm. Hate to drag you way up here for nothing."
The short stories featuring Wolf all have a similar compelling start to them that draws you into the story.
Tim Wohlforth has had several dozen short stories accepted for publication.
