Meet the unforgettable Lionel Essrog, a gonzo detective with full blown Tourette’s syndrome, trying to solve the murder of his small-time mobster boss. Essrog narrates this mystery novel in the hard-boiled mold with all of the grunting, swearing, and tics typical of the syndrome. We follow Essrog along, begin to adjust to his odd rhythms and join him in the race to avenge his boss.
