9781935797111: The Pink Tarantula: A Novel in 9 Episodes

Crip and Henrietta aren't your typical California private eyes. For one thing, Crip's real name is Tom Bateman. His sometime sidekick with body piercings and spiked green hair, Henrietta, calls him "Crip" because he rides a wheelchair. When she isn't mocking him, Henrietta grows marijuana, hangs with jailbirds, and brings in cases that reek of trouble--and weed--at first sniff. In nine closely related episodes, we watch their relationship grow as both characters struggle to bridge chasms of bitterness and mistrust. "Like a great twelve-bar blues--the comfort of a familiar form jazzed by a fresh key and an exciting new voice." --Lee Child on NO TIME TO MOURN. Advertising: Mystery Scene Magazine.
