Double Indignity

A Rex Koko, Private Clown Mystery – Book 2

Wonderful! Like Raymond Chandler before him, Garner explores the seedy underbelly of show business. And it’s a world populated by kinkers, joeys, flatties, ginks, bips, midgets and fat ladies.” — Matt Walsh, VEEP, Upright Citizens Brigade

“James Finn Garner shows us the wild breadth and dangerous, loopy depths of his imagination once again in Double Indignity. It’s bursting with memorable characters (both human and feline), whip-smart writing and innumerable jokes that come at you so fast and dead-on that you’re likely to wake up the morning after, wondering what hit you. Fortunately, it’s a fine new book, not a lion’s paw or a cop’s truncheon.”–Christine Sneed, Paris He Said, Little Known Facts

In Double Indignity, Rex Koko is begged to bring in a runaway lion, but has his shoe eaten in the process. Trying to get repaid for the expensive footwear, he runs afoul of drug-pushing quacks, alligator hypnotists, Amazonian witch doctors, baby-faced mobsters and blue-nosed moral crusaders trying to shut down Top Town. Before the second act, menace fills the air like the smell of popcorn, whiskey and fear. The South American jungle was never so dangerous as the tawdry streets of “The next best thing to a circus.”

It’s three rings of danger, suspense and more danger. Lions! Lustful ladies! Lethal larries! As e.e. cummings said, “Damn everything, but the circus!”
