    Spiggot is catapulted into his second worst nightmare when, on a stakeout to catch criminal mastermind, his soul is sent by means of an ancient artifact into a mad axe murderer's body, who is held captive in a maximum security residential hospital for the criminally insane... Sheez, you couldn't make it up. His only hope of redemption is to rely on his partner to help catch the villain. The trouble is he's in a nutcase's body, Trout didn't like him in the first place, he's got an insane copper after him and he's afraid of pirates.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I recommend this book if you like British humor, silly tongue and cheek banter and the somewhat ADD way of story telling by two dysfunctional writers. Fortunately I like both Monty Python and Carl Hiassen, so although I did quite a bit of eye rolling, I actually liked this book. The story line was quite good, albeit unbelievable, but then it is set in the future, so who knows.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Like Carl Hiassen, there is an humanitarian tone to it. A lesson to be taught, this time against racism, sexism, homosexism, theism and a whole bunch of other isms. What it all boils down to is play nice with others and live your life with some tolerance of your fellow human being. Ultimately bigotry and racism are like diseases, even if you are not personally throwing stones, by spewing forth your racist opinions and comments, you still spread the germs of racism and cause the disease to spread. Walk a mile in someone's shoes / or body and you have to be changed.


    What does Wayne Farrell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The villanous laugh, dialect, sound effects - definitely worked to this book's favor.
