The Gentrified Bodega Investigates the Secrets of a Shady Landlord

(July 25, 2017) Wherever rents are rapidly rising, and especially where there’s rent control, there’s always a problem with landlords stepping outside the law to evict renters.  But what happens when there’s something in the building that isn’t human and isn’t ready to leave?

In The Gentrified Bodega, the July installment of The Mister Lewis Incidents finds our “physics consultant” hero retained by a landlord to get to the bottom of the bizarre deaths and

doppelgangers that are preventing him from cashing out and selling his building to a developer.

“Having lived in New York City and San Francisco, I’ve heard plenty of stories about landlords who are monsters,” says author Todd Allen. “Isn’t it time one of those landlords met an actual monster?  There might be some schadenfreude involved.”

The Gentrified Bodega is the fourth story in the Mister Lewis Incidents.

About The Gentrified Bodega

“The neighborhood was improving and people were dying to move in. Then their bodies were turning up in the back aisle of the bodega. The building wove a web of shady evictions, fake leases and unexplainable deaths. Can Mister Lewis discover the secret of the gentrified bodega or will the housing crisis be solved by mass attrition?”

The Gentrified Bodega is available on Amazon Kindle, B&N Nook and Kobo or direct from the publisher.
