The scene shifts to Hartshire in the Earth Realm from Nambroc in the Nether Realm in Crepier, the third novella in the Nambroc Sequence, a fantasy series.
Crepier, an accountant and black market financier, wants to retire and be financially set for the rest of his life.
To achieve this goal, he convinces Watley Greywall, local crime lord in Hartshire, to get behind his idea of establishing Hartshire Bank.
Other elements of the Hartshire criminal underworld are of two minds about this possibility.
One segment of the Hartshire criminal underworld wants to get involved with this opportunity to start a bank because it is a legitimate commercial enterprise and a way to launder their ill-gotten gains.
Another segment believes the bank will the draw attention of the Hartshire Constabulary, which would be more problems than it is worth.
All that matters to Crepier is establishing the Hartshire Bank, and nothing or no one will stop him.
About R.D. Henderson:
He, however, does not write stories in the same vein as LORD OF THE RINGS by Tolkien or fantasy writers that have followed him.
Besides reading fantasy, GODFATHER by Mario Puzo, NOBLE HOUSE by James Clavell, and the trilogy by John Gardner about Professor James Moriarty as the gaslight godfather are among some of his favorite books.
He has taken the above as inspiration to create fantasy and sword & sorcery stories that meld the criminal with the fantastic.
R.D. Henderson is a pen name for the author. He and his family live near Seattle, Washington.
R.D. is currently working on the next installment in the Nambroc Sequence.
