Fans of funny detective stories, meet Maynard Soloman. Some say he's crusty, profane and clueless. If you ask him, he solves the world's problems one case at a time.
In this short story, the Ol' Badger runs into his estranged wife's cult. In order to get a divorce, he'll need to legalize gay marriage. Or be eaten as a human sacrifice.
He'd better hurry. The cult just bought ranch dressing.
* Bonus: Includes "Maynard's 10 Signs Your Kid is in a Cult."
