Beach Slapped, is a mystery novel in the tradition of Carl Hiaasen. Focusing on the just-off-of-center residents of Surfland, a half-fictional city of 10,000 people on the wet and weird coast of Oregon, the adventure isn't just about getting the bad guy, it's about the lovable lunatics met along the way.
From best-selling author Barton Grover Howe comes the second installment in his Surfland adventures... Wild-mannered part-time reporter Jackson Poe doubts the idea of hot fun in the summertime - largely because the third attempt on his life in as many days left him coated in steaming mammal blubber. And that's just his work. On the personal front, Poe's nudist friend caught crabs (two pounds), a narcoleptic dog keeps shedding in his convertible, and his favorite coffee shop hovers on the verge of closing.
It's the end of world as they know it in Surfland, Oregon: The town's Tiki Bar has closed, and only fashion refugee Jackson Poe can save it. Facing small dogs gone wild and wild raptors gone wilder, Poe and his friends must unravel an unnatural conspiracy of greed, eaglet droppings and raccoon urine. Worse, if they can't solve the mystery by the end of the day, it really will be Parrot Eyes Lost.
