Sam Spud, Private Eye
Sam Spud, Private Eye by Maureen Ulrich, is a parody of the cheap detective novel. Sam Spud is a down-on-his-luck private eye with a fondness for junk food and clichés. He is convinced that his down-to-earth secretary Jane Reynolds has a crush on him. Sam’s luck seems to change when Lula Baum-Schell, a gorgeous former model and actress, hires Sam to help find her husband, Edward, a wealthy dog food magnate. Police detective Inspector Oiseau complicates matters when he enters the picture and stirs up old resentments that started when he and Sam worked the Velveeta Cheese case. Time is of the essence as Sam visits his informants on Tin Pan Alley and at Danny’s Diner looking for leads. Will Sam be able to solve this case before the kidnappers kill Edward? Your guess is as good as ours!
