Taxidermy collector Garth Carson, the protagonist of Pipsqueak and Stuffed, returns for another crazy and hilarious adventure. This time he goes straight to Hell (Michigan, that is), and that's just the beginning. This wholly original page-turner seems to get more outrageous the further you read, but by the end you can see it's all controlled chaos. Hang on for a wild roller-coaster ride.

Hoping his "danger days" are behind him, Garth is now working for a specialty insurance company and appraising the taxidermy collections of big-time game hunters. But when he arrives at the Chicago home of football star Sprunty G. Fulmore to appraise his collection and finds he's been murdered in a rather grisly manner, Garth can feel trouble around the corner. Sure enough, Sprunty isn't the first big-game hunter who had hired Garth as an appraiser to be murdered, and he quickly becomes a person of interest in these crimes.

Soon the FBI and the military are involved, and Garth is on the run, trying to keep one step ahead of the authorities and the killer who's now hunting him. (DELL, Jun., 368 pp., $6.99)
