Series: The Adventures of Nick & Carter
Nick Williams is out of the private detective business. He still owns a building full of private dicks, but he's had enough of dead bodies and the like.
So, while Carter Jones, his tall, muscled ex-firefighter of a husband, continues to publish books, Nick is out and about, looking for new and fun ways to get in trouble!
Of course, just because he may (or may not) have surrendered his license doesn't mean the dead bodies don't find him, from time to time...
