In 1990 the grown up ex kid detectives are haunted by their last case and events that cannot be explained by a man in a mask. Andy is prone to violence, Kerri threw away her career, Nate is in an asylum and their former leader Peter is dead. The surviving ex kid detectives and Tim (the great grandson of the original canine member of their club) return to the small town where is seems malign activities never ceased.
With a narrative penchant for comedy and an existentially threatening problem lurking, this is an endearing read full of dry nonchalance, idiotic over-confidence, imminent threat, inexplicable events and a terrifying reality. This is a savagely funny and ingenious book.
