(From the publisher):
A lovable millionaire who baked poison tarts; A toothsome sweet young thing with an expensive sweet tooth for men; Two distinguished citizens found drowned on dry land; An entire town that hated the man who saved it; A determined detective and his one-track, wrong-way mind.
And only Asey Mayo, the salty "Codfish Sherlock," to steer a crew of offbeat characters through a shifting fog of suspicion, violence and terror in one of his most bizarre and baffling cases.
