From official release/information:
This little book (86 pgs) starts out weird and goes from there. Fans of Lucius Shephard or F. Paul Wilson (Repairman Jack) should find it engaging. I did, though I fought it hard. A crazy lady pushes a dead hooker in a shopping cart up the L.A. River under a full moon. And it gets better/worse. They're accompanied by a guy who used to be a bit player on action tv shows but has now found true meaning as in cosmetic surgery and life as a human/beagle. 'The sex is incredible'. Oh yeah, and there's a guy trussed up on top of the hooker that the madwoman (and the dead hooker) really hope is more than he thinks he is. He's Marty Burns, ex-child actor, and the only sane one around. The whole thing kind of gets under your skin, but that's a good thing. I think. This novella marks Marty's seventh outing and that's definitely a good thing.
