P. I. Hasard wasn't always a loner. He was made that way due to the loss of his wife, partner, and pretty much everyone else that he ever got close to. Was he bad luck, or was he just getting what he deserved? But, Hasard isn't alone. Whether it's a sassy cab driver, an arrogant professor, a condescending secretary, or a surly bartender, John's world is full of people who care about him and want to help, regardless if he wants it or not. The stories of John Hasard are a throwback to classic pulp detective stories.
