Publisher's Summary

Best friends James Lessor and Skip Moore are hardly on the fast track. While James works as a line cook at Cap'n Crab, Skip spends his days attempting to sell security systems to people who (a) have no money and (b) have nothing they care to protect.

James and Skip aren't upwardly mobile, but they're about to get literally mobile when James spends a surprise inheritance on a white box truck. It's an investment in the future, he surmises, as these two are starting a business devoted to hauling other people's stuff.

But the fledgling business takes a shocking turn when James and Skip unload the contents of their first moving job and find some unexpected cargo: a bloody human finger. James and Skip must scramble to stay ahead of the perpetrators of the gruesome crime in this witty, gritty mystery about big dreams, big ideas, and big trouble.

Critic Reviews

"Bruns is simply masterful... a romp through Miami to be snickered at and savored." (Deadly Pleasures)
"James and Skip are so puppy-dog endearing and funny that they deserve an encore. Maybe even a series. Like the Hardy Boys." (ForeWord Magazine)
"This quirkily engaging mystery by the author of the Mick Sever series is a buddy novel as funny as the movie Dumb and Dumber." (Library Journal)

well done

A very entertaining story; well written and kept me interested. The reader also did a great job, keeping the 'voice' in context without overplaying. I recommend it.

Stuff to listen for!

Loved this book. Loved the characters, the narrator, the story... left me hoping for more of James and Skip's adventures. It made me laugh and walk extra everyday just to keep listening. Soon as I finish this I'm going looking for more of Don Bruns books.

An utterly forgettable book

I don't really have anything negative to say about the book, but on the other hand I can't think of anything positive either. It was an utterly forgettable experience.

Narrator's voice sounds too old...

Sorry Joe, but these guys are only 24 years old and you sound like a 60 year old smoker.
