For over 220 years, my family and I have done everything in our power to let truth come out: the son of Louis XVI co-founder of the United-States, Louis XVII, didn't die in the Temple prison, contrary to what all successive Governments, and Bourbon and Orleans ruling families, have been trying to make you believe, going as far as attempted murders on the person of Louis XVII, and poisoning or slaughtering people, doctors and nobles faithful to our cause, who were willing and able to act as witnesses in favor of the child's survival and of his legal ties with the royal family. Even nowadays, still using insidious means, although with brutality, some of our cousins keep pursuing their undermining job. In times and countries where monarchy still exists, we could see that they might have some interest in doing so. Aside for the multitude of proofs accumulated over the centuries, even though a number of documents have purposefully -disappeared-, progress in DNA research allows us beyond any doubt to prove that we are the great-grand-sons of Louis XVII. Everything is laid down in writing in this book.
Just see it for yourself.

When Sam Kornberg’s wife, Lala, walks out on him, he’s an unemployed used-book store clerk and failed experimental novelist with a broken heart. Desperate to win her back, he takes a job as assistant detective to the enigmatic Solar Lonsky, a private eye who might be an eccentric and morbid genius or just a morbidly obese madman. It’s a simple tail job, following a beautiful and mysterious lady around L.A., but Sam soon finds himself helply falling for his quarry and hopely entangled in a murder case involving Satanists, succubi, underground filmmakers, Hollywood bigshots, Mexican shootouts, video-store geekery, and sexy doppelgangers from beyond the grave. A case that highlights the risks of hardcore reading and mourns the death of the novel—or perhaps just the decline of Western Civilization. Mystery Girl is a thriller about the dangers of marriage and a detective story about the unsolvable mysteries of love, art, and other people.
