Publisher's Summary

Irving can't function socially, so he spies on people and posts the results on the Internet, where he has a cult-like following. Normally careful to preserve his anonymity, he breaks his own rules when he falls in love with pretty plus-sized Veronica, a naughty-bingo caller. Then she disappears. Should Irving pursue, even as Veronica delves deeper into international drug couriering? When it turns out she's packing something different than dope in her suitcase, and needs Irving's help to close the deal, he's drawn to play an active role in her underworld.

Unusual characters, and unpredictable storyline

I really enjoyed this story. It kept surprising me at every turn. It's funny, with a touch of what the heck? Three main characters with interlocking stories all so very different: Irving has mild Asperger's which makes him socially awkward, his strange hobby of spying on people brings him in hilarious contact with the R-rated bingo caller, Veronica. Mateo, a young green-card carrying immigrant just trying to make it on the straight and narrow, gets mixed up in his late uncle's illegal Shenanigans, which of course, leads him to get intertwined with the the other two. All three are laughably bad at their underworld scheme, and they fear for their lives … though it's not what you think! Pete KJ has a deft touch with uniquely on the fringes characters. The story keeps moving and doesn't get bogged down in the details, but there's plenty of "local flavor" in the five distinct parts of the world that the action moves through. He writes like a guy who's spent time in all the places we visit. I think we'll be hear more from KJ in the future, and I'm looking forward to it.
