(From the publisher):
Meet Paul and Lacey Hansen: orphaned, pot-growing, twentysomething siblings eking out a living in rural California. When a headless corpse appears on their property, they can't exactly call 911, so they move the body and wait for the police to find it. Instead, the corpse reappears, a few days riper-this time Lacey recognizes it as her ex-fiance...and an amateur sleuth is born. Make that two.
When collaborators Lutz and Howard (former romantic partners) start to disagree about how the story should unfold, the body count rises, victims and suspects alike develop wildly inconsistent characteristics (meet Brandy Chester, the stripper with the Mensa IQ), and our detective detectives wind up putting both their lives at risk. Will the authors solve the mystery without killing each other first?
