Calling Dr Dip Dog! - The Tiny Fiancé Chronicles #2
Publisher: S. J. Lowe
What do a missing backpack, an inflatable fat suit, a dumpster full of plagiarized essays, floating body parts, an owl named Vincent, a disillusioned punk rocker, and two retired ex-wrestlers from Cigar City have in common? In Calling Dr. Dip Dog! they all intersect with Tiny Fiancé and his hapless attempts to impersonate a Barfly College professor. With Dean Indeedo as his mentor, Tiny finally seems to be realizing a host of solid academic rewards: an orange jumpsuit, a regular paycheck as a Groundskeeper Trainee, a free apartment owned by his supervisor, and the prospect of plenty of dirty money a little further down the academic road of success. According to Indeedo, all Tiny has to do to remain in good academic graces and actually see that money is to murder one of his former students, Leida Crumpler, via a plan that is just crazy enough to work. But, is murdering Leida, even without her fat suit and red wig, worth the risks and rewards of being Dean Indeedo's new hot-squeeze do-boy? In attempting to answer that question, Tiny finally discovers the mystery behind "Boss" Indeedo's rabid interest in the contents of Leida's elusive backpack. In this quirky, upbeat, and witty academic mystery farce, it's Love in the Time of Cholera meets Love Among the Chickens. Culture and crudity go on holiday, and you'll want to be along for the ride!
