By the Honourable. Senator Grandt As soon as I could, between two sessions, i would practise my skill with the two-bands. I managed some splendid shots... But I was far from attaining my dream of potting three balls at the same time... The legendary shot. I leave that to the expert players of "Mandarin", the game of Chinese billiards, at which I have never been more than a bumbler. I have enough trouble shooting two consecutive doubles, as I did during a very long game with Elisha Commstock...

Yet I did see a ruffian by the name of De Witt, accomplished what i had thought impossible: the fellow actually managed two triples before my eyes! From then on, i practiced feverishly, even renouncing alcohol or wine which poisons the spirit's sentries.

7 days later, the powdered rascal took $300 from me! I was so furious that I later refused to preside over the defense commission! With my gold in his pocket, he sneered at me: "Senator, you would need many lives to beat me!"

I intended to challenge him to another match, but De Witt disappeared completely. I was sickened.

So downhearted was I that I gave up the game for three years, turning instead to casino gambling... My experiences in that field are described in my last book: "The Jackpot I nearly won".

Alone in the Dark 2

It is Christmas of 1924, three months after Alone in the Dark. "Supernatural Private Eye" Edward Carnby and his partner Ted Stryker are investigating the kidnapping of young Grace Saunders. The trail of clues leads to an old mansion named "Hell's Kitchen" - the home of an infamous gangster boss and his gang. Edward decides to pick up the trail when he learns of Ted's disappearance in the mansion. Unfortunately, Edward soon finds out that Ted has been murdered.

Carnby eventually finds out that the mobsters are the corporeal forms of the spirits of pirates that plundered the sea hundreds of years ago, the lot having sold their souls in exchange for eternal life through voodoo magic. Fighting his way into the house and ultimately onto a pirate ship hidden in the cliff on which Jack's house is built, Edward must survive, discover the secret of the pirates' apparent immortality, rescue little Grace, and find out why the pirates are so interested in her.
