Totally quirky and occasionally laugh out loud funny. A mystery about authors and the publication business with a wacko greedy agent thrown in, not to mention the main character author who is befriended whether she likes it or not by two hit men named Karl and Candy who are actually fairly educated on some topics. Candy's attachment to his ghost angel fish is just more hysteria to add to the plot of this "gets what he deserves" mystery. It is an elaborate in-joke that just isn't funny. It is more annoying than amusing. There were a handful of sort of amusing moments, but 24 hours later, I can't remember any of them.Whatshername, the hapless authorette who needs rescuing, is utterly forgettable. And the hitmen and villains lack distinctive qualities too.I quit reading about halfway through. Because I could, and it made sense to do so.
