Publisher Description

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.

Quotes

  • “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
  • “With Bruns’ second offering, we are presented with yet another set of lovable freaks and oddballs; this batch will remind the reader of Tim Dorsey’s cast of whacked-out characters but with the narrative voice and feel of Mark Twain’s Huck Finn…How can you not like a novel with characters like that?”

    - Booklist (starred review)
  • “Bruns is simply masterful…a romp through Miami to be snickered at and savored.”

    - Deadly Pleasures
  • “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

    " Loved this book...almost ordered it for my Kindle but hesitated as I'd never heard of the author. Found it at the library and am glad I checked it out. Very clear storyline, plot follows, good thriller/mystery; very much like a Robert Crais mystery. "

    " So far so good. I really like his style, the story is gripping but not ugly, and the people for the most part are real. I think I will look for more by this author. "

    " This was a free Kindle book read on another plane ride. It was a passable novel, given the history I've experienced with other freebies. A little intrigue and a decent plot, although not a literary masterpiece by any measure! "

    " This is a story about 2 buddies who get into a business together & purchase a big moving-type of a truck. In one of their moves they find a human finger!... Who does the finger belong to? Who put in there and why? You will have to read to find out! "

    " I didn't enjoy this book. I believe the author's intention is to have the reader care about the characters, but I did not. Basically I wanted to finish it so I could move onto another book. "

    " I considered giving this book one star. However, I usually reserve one star ratings to books that I actually close up and put away. This one was close. The plot was fairly predictable. The characters were annoying, and I there were far too many loose ends. "
