Simultaneously makes fun of the classic detective story while honoring all the tropes and foibles! Even laugh-out-loud funny in some places! Keillor's range as a writer is inspiring.

O.K.( see below )but this might be the exception in Garrison's case . Honestly - this reminds me of his comments on Scotch whiskey - cloudy , bitter , judgmental - done the the name of satire . I would not read this ! And returned it with 70 pages read
