As Joe R. Lansdale portrays ex-private eye Charlie Garner, he gives the role a Mike Hammer flavor with a Texas twang. The appearance--and disappearance--of Garner's ex-wife sends him on the trail of a cult that is linked to donut shops. He gets help from his brother, Felix, voiced in a chiding tone by Greg Littlefield; a writer nicknamed Scrappy, voiced with a gung-ho attitude and a touch of combativeness by Finlay Stevenson; and Felix's girlfriend, Cherry, a lawyer who is voiced with skepticism and the occasional touch of anger by January LaVoy. Their investigation runs afoul of Police Chief Stone, voiced by Brad Sanders. Even fans of the hard-boiled detective genre will enjoy the surprising humor brought to this mystery by Lansdale and the rest of the cast. J.A.S.
