Volume 3: The Case of the red ghost camel

"The Case of the Red Ghost Camel" transported us to the enigmatic legends and spine-chilling mysteries of the 1880s Southwest United States. Sightings of a massive creature, a camel with a skeletal rider on its back, spread like wildfire across the desert, creating a terrifying legend.


But this was no mere ghost story. Smyth, Abbott, and Larson found themselves entangled in a web of murder and intrigue as the Red Ghost Camel terrorized sheepherders, brutally trampling them to death. Their investigation unveiled a sinister cattle syndicate's involvement, wielding the camel as a weapon. Scruffy Jones, a local drunk, played a pivotal role in unraveling the mysteries, recounting tales of the camel's origin, suggesting that it was part of the U.S. Army's ill-fated experiment to import camels for use in American deserts.
