Publisher's Summary

Most people would be overjoyed to win $50,000 and the chance to star in a nation-wide commercial, even if it was just for a fast food joint like Camelot Burger. Then again, Clint Tucker has never been like most people.
Ushered to the tropical paradise of Kenowai, he and the other winners undertake an island tradition for the cameras, one meant to free a local imprisoned deity. One with very specific requirements that have yet to be met. One that might just be a bit more authentic than any of them expected. One that will begin a journey fraught with danger, excitement, and more beer than is wise or healthy.

Hard to classify, reminds me of Anansi's Boys

What did you love best about Pears and Perils?

Thunder PUNCH!!! I enjoyed the set up and the quirky characters. These are areas where Drew Hayes is strong.

I've also read the 'Fred Vampire Accountant' stuff and, while I prefer those, I thought this was pretty great as well. I thought the ending was a bit weak (the guy at the end suddenly seems to have skills that were never hinted at before), but by then I was pretty well hooked. If you enjoyed 'Fred Vampire Accountant' you'll like this stuff as well.

Read it for the author's snippet bio...

...stay for the really weird and cool story.

I'm so into this guy's writing, this is my third book he has written. I found him algorithmically by searching associations with ready player one, the Martian and the off to be the wizard trilogy- all of which are amazing. so if that is your jam, you should totally read this.
