Cheer for the Dead: A Pat Campbell Detective Story

Multiple File Formats

Pat Campbell is back -- the big man, six-foot six to be exact, with the big heart -- in a story brimming with action and suspense...

Clients were more than paying customers to Pat Campbell. they were friends -- whose problems remained his problems even after they themselves ceased to care... Wark Andross -- for one -- was certainly beyond earthly cares now. Wark was a man whom people loved without regard for his millions. It was entirely fitting, therefore, that the press should memorialize his untimely death as "Unfortunate! Regrettable! Deplorable!" And it was natural for the police -- circumstances being what they were -- to tag the case as just another unfortunate accident.

But Pat Campbell was dissatisfied with the tearful condolences on the one hand and the routine judgments on the other. To his mind, there were too many questions about Wark's death still unanswered; too many evasions and conflicting reports. Somehow it didn't seem reasonable that a man in the prime of his life, in full posession of his faculties would... And for murder, eight million dollars could prove a powerful incentive! So Pat went to work. And soon he found himself locked in a struggle to the finish with a desparate -- but resourceful -- murderer.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
