The plot of "Cheese Wrestling" is somewhat contrived, as it would have to be in order to provide an excuse to team up two cops working geographically diverse beats. Clayton is searching for a missing teenage girl from his hometown. The girl had become a drug addict and wound up being sold by a group of local bikers to Russian mobsters from Chicago. Clayton travels to Chicago and, with the help of Jack Daniels, tracks the girl down to the house where the mobsters are holding her and some other women.
Based on this description, a reader might think this is a serious story, and, indeed, there's a couple of rather gruesome passages in which the authors describe the addicted girl's desperation to get high. However, for the most part, this is a comic story. To give you an idea of the type of humor, two of the bikers that Clayton rousts to try to get information from are named "Poop" and "Property of Poop." In addition, another plot point involves the authors' teasing the audience with references to cheese wrestling, an activity that is finally explained in a manner that readers are not likely to forget, no matter how much they might want to.
I enjoy a humorous detective story as much as the next guy, and some of the jokes here are rather funny, but they don't mesh all that well with the serious undercurrent in the story. Further, the comic material crowds out the rest of the story, so there's really little actual story here. The authors claim the story is 48 pages long, but that seems stretching it a bit. In actuality, it's nothing more that a rather long short story. Further, the authors charge $1.99 for this, which seems somewhat high. Like the cheese whiz I referred to earlier, there's not a lot of nourishment here for the price.
For those who don't feel $1.99 is too much to pay for a short story like this, I'm giving it a mild recommendation. The characters are interesting and there are some good jokes here. However, the jokes don't always work with the more serious material and the story itself is mighty slender. "Cheese Wrestling" ultimately is a somewhat cheesy story.
