Senseless Confidential, a comedic crime caper through the county's backwoods, is his third book.

Senseless Confidential (excerpt) (Literature & Fiction)
5 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:33PM
Description: Nick Prince just wants to go drown his sorrows at the Safari Club and pine for Beth, his lost college love. But before he can do that, his job with the U.S. Census Bureau requires him to face down reluctant respondents in the remote forests of Oregon, who repel him with everything from pit bulls to shotguns. When a chance encounter in the tiny town of Elwood lands him in the midst of a loopy polygamist clan, it sets off a wild, wacky race to save himself, his job, and his bleeding heart. You won't know whether to laugh or cry as Nick struggles to sort out the multiple warrants and women that stand between him and his sanity.

Despite the popularity of this book, it was, to my mind, unnecessarily dense and wordy. It could have benefited from better editing. A writer who tells too much is one who neither trusts his own writing nor his reader.
