If you're like me, you bought this because of the Chronicle on the SF channel. It's way different--most importantly, here, the supernatural IS generally debunked, not real.
There's not much science in these short, prose driven novels. What the author does do well is write hilarious prose. These novels are so funny that you laugh out loud. He's got a turn of the phrase, a feel for the absurd. By the time you are done, you feel guilty for having had so much fun considering how light the plots are....! Ps. I liked Vampires of Vermont better.

Like the first book in the series, this is a mystery book with only a touch of science fiction. In fact, there's so little sci fi in this one that it makes me wonder why anyone would put it on the sci fi shelves. It really doesn't matter. What matters is -- Savvy's back! This time Savvy is out to figure out what's driving a whole town mad. The plot involves poison apples, genetic engineering, the CDC, and a cute coworker with more looks than brains. Savvy continues her wry observations about herself and others. It's funny, breezy, and interesting. A great cosy.

Reporter Savvy Skye works for a sleazy tabloid. Investigating a stack of nutty calls, she discovers an island in the Mississippi where everything has gone crazy. There's a murder and a mad doctor and a gentic engineering firm and a possible plague of insanity. A very fast, fun read. I'm looking forward to more adventures with Savvy Skye!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
When I finished this book I wanted to heave it across the room. This author has a VERY bad habit of leaving major issues unresolved. He did it in Monster of Minnesota, and he did it in this one as well. At the end, we aren't even told what happened with the 19 year old girl who is dying! And what about the mayor? He walks in the building during the climax and we never hear from him again! His character pretty much disappears from the story shortly after he appears--and he's not a minor character! The denouement was rushed and left the reader feeling like the author simply lost interest in the story. No wonder this series in now out of print.
