Hero For Hire #6
Issue(s): Hero For Hire #6
Their grandfather is dying, but one of the sisters also thinks someone is trying to kill him (the other just thinks that grandfather is accident prone, but we'll learn that he's in an iron lung, so the only "accidents" he was having weren't likely to be deadly).
The attempted murderer turns out to be a grandson that was presumed dead. The will said that he would inherit the entire estate if the grandfather died before he reached age 25, and it didn't seem likely that he would make it, so he wanted to help things along.
It's a fun story not quite in the traditional "drawin' room murder" style, as Cage puts it. Some decent scripting about Cage being uncomfortable in the environment he's in.
At the beginning of the issue, Cage is fighting some goons in his apartment, which feels like just a way to establish the gritty scene as these two rich young women show up in Times Square to hire a private detective, but in issue #8 Englehart will tie this back to the plot from issue #5 that was left unresolved.
I like Billy Graham's art and wish he could have penciled more of this series.

A fun story, if not groundbreaking like Goodwin's issues, The final scene has Luke getting reward kissses from the rich girls but being spotted by Claire in true cheesy romance style.

The title refers to the 1967 Moody Blues song "Nights In White Satin".
