Just back from Guatemala after three years of tending bar on Lake Atitlan, part-time shaman and New Age dick Natty Dredd Bumpo returns to Traverse City, Michigan, where he finds himself plunged head-first into solving the murder of millionaire eco-warrior Timothy Bottom.
Complicating matters, a Russian femme fatale, a mysterious skull, a roving militia and a grumpy gator add to the mayhem that could get Bumpo killed, or worse. 
   Sometimes the cosmic pancake falls sweet side up and sometimes it's syrup side down. Which way will it flip for Northern Michigan's grungiest detective?
