“A darkly comic tale about Mr Less-Than-Average in an average world.”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
Poor Martin. Picked on in school, the butt of jokes from his coworkers, and still living at home under the thumb of his mother who just happens to be more caustic than Drain-o. Look up the word loser in the dictionary and there you’ll find a picture of Martin Reed in all his pitiful glory.
Martin is chubby, dumpy, and so naive that he thinks Madame Glitter’s is a legitimate massage parlor. The only time Martin likes his life is when he is reading a crime novel or watching Dancing With the Stars.
When one of his coworkers is brutally murdered, without a doubt Martin will become the prime suspect. That’s just the way life is for poor Martin. But things start to look up when Detective Anther Albada is assigned to his case. Is it possible that this lovely woman could fall in love with him? Martin soon finds that he might just do anything to spend more time with her.
