If Carl Hiaasen and Janet Evanovich were to write a book about the Oregon Coast, this could be the story. An ingeniously conceived and flawlessly executed casino heist on the Oregon coast gets ambushed by two local deadbeats. But soon the clever thieves are able retrieve their loot and stash it safely. A prim little waitress with an awkward flatulence problem, a cranky steelhead trout, a box of Voodoo donuts and a bright but kooky precinct dispatcher with exotic lusts, each play a unique role in this clever caper. A dedicated and determined cop devotes all his energies to solving the crime but finds only frustration, heartbreak and personal tragedy for his efforts. But will this perfect crime ultimately be solved?
