What to expect
Best friends James Lessor and Skip Moore are hardly on the fast track. While James works as a line cook at Cap’n Crab, Skip spends his days attempting to sell security systems to people who (a) have no money and (b) have nothing they care to protect.
James and Skip aren’t upwardly mobile, but they’re about to get literally mobile when James spends a surprise inheritance on a white box truck. It’s an investment in the future, he surmises, as these two are starting a business devoted to hauling other people’s stuff.
But the fledgling business takes a shocking turn when James and Skip unload the contents of their first moving job and find some unexpected cargo: a bloody human finger. James and Skip must scramble to stay ahead of the perpetrators of the gruesome crime in this witty, gritty mystery about big dreams, big ideas, and big trouble.
Crime and mystery fiction
Listen to a sample
“James and Skip are so puppy-dog endearing and funny that they deserve an encore. Maybe even a series. Like the Hardy Boys.”
“With Bruns’ second offering, we are presented with yet another set of lovable freaks and oddballs; this batch will remind the reader of Tim Dorsey’s cast of whacked-out characters but with the narrative voice and feel of Mark Twain’s Huck Finn…How can you not like a novel with characters like that?”
“Bruns is simply masterful…a romp through Miami to be snickered at and savored.”
“This quirkily engaging mystery by the author of the Mick Sever series is a buddy novel as funny as the movie Dumb and Dumber.”
