What would you do if your parents were both performance artists that insisted that you, their child, were part of their art? Annie and Buster Fang have grown up taking part in wild and crazy acts all in the name of art - Buster at age nine taking part in a "little miss" beauty pagent, Annie made to perform on instruments she couldn't play in front of an audience begging for money for a dog's surgery -- all as a performance piece led by their eccentric and bizarre parents. Now that they are old enough to know better, they choose to be a Hollywood actress and a novelist, but both are struggling. At a low point in both their lives, they return home to their parents. Before either of them can really begin to put the pieces of their lives together again, the parents (Caleb and Camille Fang) go missing. Is this just another in their tireless efforts to be immortal to art or is the bloody scene the result of a serial killer on the loose? Annie and Buster must do all in their power to get to the bottom of this mystery while still keeping themselves sane in the process. Kevin Wilson's prose is easy and this makes for a fast read. Great, quirky characters set this story apart.
