Suddenly, morose Pine Cove turns libidinous and is hit by a mysterious crime wave, 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.

"Moore is Daniel Pinkwater for grownups, but a lot funnier; and his irreverent antics reveal a buoyant wit and surreal authority even while rendering the emotional range, sex life, and murderous tendencies of a sea monster." (Publishers Weekly)
I couldn't finish it. It has some very funny characters but it wasn't as funny as it tries to be. I am sure some folks would like it though, if the humor hits you just right.
My grandchildren think I'm silly when I make up poems for them. My wife thinks I'm silly when I suggest that she should take out the trash, just once. But this book is just too silly.
