There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Now, with that said it’s also good to note that Moore often writes from the perspective of a pervy, lewd man sinking into her geriatrics unwillingly, so this isn’t practiacl someone who is easily offended by the thoughts I know all honest people probably have. As Demonkesping said, Moore’s plots twist like crazy, but the real joy with him are the crazy characters, little asides and observations that he and his characters make, and, quite bluntly, the off-the-wall humor.

A stranger rolls into town bringing with him an invisible demon named Catch. Since then, Travis has been trying to send Catch back to hell. The bulk of the novel – which takes place over one weekend – deals with Catch’s efforts to create havoc and the often unlinked efforts of Travis and Augustus to contain him. Great fun to read.

This is a great story, has an interesting plot, and has very memorable characters.
