“HILARIOUS…RUSSELL’S PROSE STYLE IS FLAWLESS, HIS ADEPT HANDLING OF HUMOR SUBLIME.…WANT TO TAKE A VACATION WITHOUT LEAVING HOME? INVITE
THE FAT INNKEEPER
FOR THE WEEKEND.”


Mostly Murder

THE FAT INKEEPER IS HIROSHI YAMADA. THE INN IS THE POSH. VERY EXPENSIVE HOTEL CALIFORNIA, and the problem is…well…everything. For Am Caufield, head of hotel security, working for his new Japanese boss, Hiroshi, is hard enough. Then a debunker of near death experiences turns up dead, a dead whale comes ashore, and a group booking called the Swap Meat turns out to be a convention of sex swingers. Just when things seem totally beyond Am’s control, Hiroshi gives him a brand new assignment:
Become a samurai—and catch the killer who’s loose in my hotel
!
