loved this book. the funniest part was when the skunk got into the mortuary, turned around, lifted his tail, and left his scent in the mortuary. if you somehow avoided this "honor", let me say....pee u. no oder worse in the world....stinks to the high heavens.....nothing gets that smell out....trust me I know!....anyway they had a funeral that day......... any way there was a good guy and an extremely wicked guy who hurt or killed everyone who did not jump to his every wish. I truly enjoyed this book. it held my attention, especially closer to the end.
