A Surfland Mystery
A sea lion getting randy with a marine biologist off the coast of Surfland, Oregon, marks only the beginning of Jackson Poe’s strangest week ever. Teaming up with a nudist mascot with a penchant for cooking seafood in exploding butter, Poe takes a break from his freelance writing non-career to find out why a ruthless developer seems hell-bent on making crossing the street unsafe for little old ladies. Following leads throughout the byzantine streets of Surfland, with the top down on his convertible rain or shine, Poe finally puts it all on the line to solve the mystery as everyone in town buckles up or dives for cover.
BEACH SLAPPED: It’s wild and weird insanity on America’s wettest edge, where the only thing crazier than the people is the truth.
“Move over Carl Hiassen, Tim Dorsey, Steve Berry and all the other Florida humor satire writers. A new voice and a very accomplished one I predict will be around for a long time, Howe does for the Oregon Coast what Hiaasen and the others have done for Florida.” —Sheldon McArthur, North by Northwest Books
