Description:

Comedian Tony Flaner didn’t kill the girl, but the corpse suggests otherwise. Can sarcasm, guile, and mis-remembered pulp fiction sleuths save him from the rap? Find out in this award-winning comedy mystery.

Tony Flaner is a malingering part-time comedian, full-time sarcastic, who’s never had it hard, and never finished a thing in his life. He’s had twelve years to prepare for his divorce and didn’t. He had his entire life to choose a career and hasn’t. Now time’s up, and he’s in a world of trouble. But it gets worse—a first date and a drunken party ends with Tony facing prison for the murder of a girl he hardly knew.

But other than that, it was a pretty great party.

To save himself, wise-cracking Tony must discover who the mysterious girl was, what she was involved in and what the hell she saw in him in the first place. Their lives are linked together at the ends of a Chinese finger trap, like life and death, friends and enemies, arugula quiche and pigs knuckles.
