“The first response you get when you tell a person you’ve lost something is always, ‘where did you last see it?’ We not only go to where an object was last seen, but to when it was last seen, then simply trace how it was lost and where it ended up. Clients will not be billed for hours spent solving any murders that might pop up along the way.” – Oliver Weatherby, retired Lobsterman and Co-Founder of the Pawskonsett Island Artifact Retrieval Company

Gus Milton and Carolyn Madore are two former grad students who now work for the afore mentioned PIARC; a secretive and reasonably profitable company headquartered on a remote island off the coast of Maine. Despite being run by a pair of retired lobstermen with no education beyond high school, the company has had remarkable success finding histories lost treasures. It helps that they have access to a time machine, cleverly disguised as a rather cramped mop closet.

While tracing a valuable diamond from 1920’s Western Australia to the Golden Age of Hollywood, Gus and Carolyn inadvertently leave their time machine behind the gates of the Warner Bros. studio lot; stranding them in the past. Their only friend is Errol Flynn; but the married star is having a fling with a young actress named Lorna and the scandal wary studio bosses have banned Flynn from the lot. When Lorna turns up murdered, the only way for Gus and Carolyn to return home is to find out who killed her and get Flynn back into the good graces of the studio.
