“The Pickle King is an interestingly dark and very, very wet story -- featuring ghosts and very creepy bad guys -- in which unlikely friendships are formed, mysteries are solved and relationships bloom!”
-- Cinda Meister, Booksmart, Morgan Hill, CA


Description

Bea lives in the nowhere town of Elbow, where it rains so much the residents have green mold growing between their toes. Nothing ever happens in Elbow. Its closest claim to fame is a giant pickle factory, owned by Herman, the Pickle King. Herman's a small-time big shot, a local celebrity...until he turns up dead. And when Bea and Sam stumble across the body--minus one eyeball--in the water-logged basement of a creepy old house, suddenly THEY'RE ones in a pickle! With a mystery to solve, maybe this summer won't be such a bore after all....
