Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Take a wonderfully crazed excursion into the demented heart of a tropical paradise—a world of cargo cults, cannibals, mad scientists, ninjas, and talking fruit bats. Our bumbling hero is Tucker Case, a hopeless geek trapped in a cool guy's body, who makes a living as a pilot for the Mary Jean Cosmetics Corporation. But when he demolishes his boss's pink plane during a drunken airborne liaison, Tuck must run for his life from Mary Jean's goons. Now there's only one employment opportunity left for him: piloting shady secret missions for an unscrupulous medical missionary and a sexy blond high priestess on the remotest of Micronesian hells. Here is a brazen, ingenious, irreverent, and wickedly funny novel from a modern master of the outrageous.

Synopsis:

When Tucker Case demolishes the boss's pink plane during a drunken airborne liaison, he must run for his life from the man's goons. What follows is satirical, suspenseful and certifiably insane as Tucker pursues the only employment opportunity left for him: piloting shady secret missions for an unscrupulous medical missionary and a sexy blond High Priestess.

It's not high literature, but it is the perfect book to tuck into your beach bag. Moore is funny, intelligent, disturbing, and satisfyingly quirky in this tale of gory deception and equally gruesome payback. I love it when the bad girls get their just desserts. Yum!
