Cured to death. The posh, idyllic Care Clinic promises to cure such twentieth-century afflictions as eating disorders, substance abuse, and low self-esteem. But when Shelly Lowenkopf and Homer Greeley—two former detectives from the Bronx—begin to investigate the whereabouts of one of the clinic’s most loyal patients, they’re in for some shocking treatment. A maniacal director browbeats patients and staff alike. A beautiful blonde picnics with a chimp and listens to Disney songs on a crank phonograph. And a bunch calling itself the Church of the Unflagging Eye worships the television set and everything on it. For Lowenkopf and Greeley, it would be just another missing persons case—if people weren’t suddenly turning up dead. Now the two detectives must solve a horrible killing before murder becomes the clinic’s nastiest—and most stubborn—habit. The Man Who Murdered Himself is the 7th book in the Allerton Avenue Precinct Novels, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
