Publisher's Summary

It's the story "They" don't want you to listen to. Though, to be fair, "They" are probably right about this one. To quote the Bible, "Learning the truth can be like loosening a necktie, only to realize it was the only thing keeping your head attached". No, don't put the book back on the shelf - it is now your duty to purchase it to prevent others from listening to it. Yes, it works with audiobooks, too, I don't have time to explain how.

While investigating a fairly straightforward case of a shape-shifting interdimensional child predator, Dave, John, and Amy realized there might actually be something weird going on. Together, they navigate a diabolically convoluted maze of illusions, lies, and their own incompetence in an attempt to uncover a terrible truth they - like you - would be better off not knowing.

Your first impulse will be to think that a story this gruesome - and, to be frank, stupid - cannot possibly be true. That is precisely the reaction "They" are hoping for.

    Story
    "This book has no My Little Pony refferences."

    I enjoy a long, hard, throbbing story of this caliber.
    The truth and morality shown in these pages just chisels the ice from my heart.

    "Fit as expected"

    This book was just as stupid, funny, action packed and thought provoking as his others. I genuinely enjoyed it.

    Story
    "I am genuinely upset right now."

    I knew from just a few minutes in that I was going to be really upset when this book was over and I was not wrong. It is just everything I love all in one book and I am so sad to be done.

    Writing- extremely clever, witty, and laugh-out-loud funny. The characters are well-rounded and the girlfriend is written a whole person and not simply some kind of 2D prop. The plot is exciting, unpredictable (hilariously so), horrifying (in the best way), and profound. The use of the "unreliable narrator" is very creatively done and the ending was wonderfully satisfying.

    The romance between the hero and is girlfriend was so touching it left me crying unexpectedly in traffic. The author also wove an unexpectedly beautiful and deep treatment of mental illness into the story that I just loved. There are also a lot of butts. It's very multidimensional. Highly recommend.

    "Another awesome jdate title."

    Loved it.Typical jdate hilarity and adventure. Lots of cameos and Canon tie-ins like the meat debacle and other leathery things. Hope they fix those continuity errors in the next edition.
