I found this book while helping someone clean and it looked and sounded interesting enough to give a little time to. I have never regretted it. It is weird, funny and full of just outrageous characters in the best sense of the word. I love how almost ever sentence is styled in this over the top camped out way. A nice little mystery, a cool cat as the main character and so many snappy one liners, I doubt you'll be bored with this one. Gets better every read.

A light read. Funny satirical murder mystery featuring several unique characters with Satan Stagg, a trainee of Pharoah Love, doing the investigating this time. Believable? No way. Enjoyable? You bet.
1968. Extremely funny campy mystery. Third in the Pharoah Love detective series. References a ton of movies and musicals I didn't know. Everyone is double-crossing everyone else to try to get rich.
