On some days, New York is one of the most beautiful places on Earth. This was one of the other days... Melody Malone, owner and sole employee of the Angel Detective Agency, has an unexpected caller. It's movie star Rock Railton, and he thinks someone is out to kill him.
Melody Malone is the pseudonym of River Song, wife of the Eleventh Doctor and daughter to Amy and Rory Williams. She was conceived on board the TARDIS as it travelled through the Time Vortex, giving her the ability to regenerate. After a complicated childhood, she became an archaeologist in order to track the Doctor through time. She was convicted for the Eleventh Doctor's murder and imprisoned for many years in Stormcage Containment Facility, before being finally pardoned after it was discovered there was no evidence of the Doctor's existence. She died in the Library, saving the Tenth Doctor, Donna Noble and over four thousand other souls. Justin Richards has written for stage and screen as well as writing novels and graphic novels.
