Lola Starke’s latest case involves the mild-mannered philatelist down the hall from her office. The client insists something bad’s happened to her husband, but Lola isn’t so sure. After all, what possible harm would come to a man who spends his days looking at stamps?

Of course, it’s always the quiet ones that surprise you…
