Publisher's Summary

Martin Reed is thoroughly average in every way. So how has he wound up with such a pathetic existence? Martin has no friends, no lovers, and no respect. Working as a senior accountant at Southern Toilet Supply and still living with his nagging mother, his sole source of excitement is the crime novels he cherishes. So immersed is Martin in these escapes that he fails to notice the crimes going on all around him. When first one, then another, of his co-workers is brutally murdered, Martin is shocked to become the fetching female investigator's prime suspect. Center stage at last, Martin basks not in the glow of the spotlight, but in the harsh glare of interrogation.

Critic Reviews

"Slaughter sketches larger-than-life characters using only a few ordinary, hilarious, and revealing details, and narrator Wayne Knight...gives each an energetic, gloomy, or appropriately over-the-top personality." ( AudioFile)

I found Martin very amusing, never suspected that someone else was doing the killing, just thought he was having some kind of blackout spells, until he finally admitted going to the massage pallor and then I realized something else was going on but still didn't know who until almost the end. And his mother, lord what a trip, she was the funniest character in the book. Enjoyed it.

Martin misunderstood hilarious!

This is SO different from all of the novels by Karin Slaughter, but it showcases her truly multidimensional talent. This story is delightful! Truly a laugh out loud story with a masterful performance by Seinfeld star Wayne Knight (Newman!)
