Synopses & Reviews
The town psychiatrist has decided to switch everybody inPine Cove, California, from their normal antidepressants toplacebos, so naturally -- well, to be accurate, artificially -- business is booming at the local blues bar. Trouble is, thoselonely slide-guitar notes have also attracted a colossal seabeast named Steve with a, shall we say, thing for explosiveoil tanker trucks. Suddenly morose Pine Cove turns libidinous and is filled with mysterious crimes, and a beleaguered constable has to fight off his own gonzo appetites to find out what's wrong and what, if anything, to do about it.
Strap yourselves in, ladies and gentlemen. It's Christopher Moore time.
A sea monster named Steve--who has developed a "thing" for for explosive oil tanker trucks--terrorizes newly libidinous Pine Cove, California, in the latest outrageous novel by the author of "Practical Demonkeeping" and "Island of the Sequined Nun".
