I wish we had 1/2 stars on GoodReads just for situations like this one here. No, I don't want to rate it 1 1/2 stars. I want to rate it 1/2 stars. Actually, if it was possible, I want to rate it zero stars.

The humor is forced. The main character is completely unlikable.

A boring disagreeable waste of my time. Which is unfortunate as I actually did rather enjoy another of Neal Barrett's books. Though, to be fair to myself, that one I liked was Science Fiction, and this one is Mystery.
Barrett, Jr., Neal - 3rd in Wiley Moss series

Receiving a mysterious call that informs him that his father is dead and warns him not to return home, Wiley Moss travels to Texas anyway and must solve a murder while preventing his own death.

I didn't like the characters. This just didn't work for me at all.
