Crime & mystery, Comedy & satire | Paperback, eBook


YOU NEVER HAD MONEY TROUBLE LIKE THIS.

Agent Russell is certain that Truman has some undeclared source of income — and will go to bizarre lengths to prove it. Meanwhile, record label owner, Buddy Powell, has found that his latest marketing scheme — stage a fake kidnapping of country music sensation Darla Lovell — isn't working out as planned.
