The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove

The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove by Christopher Moore

When one of psychiatrist's Dr. Val Riordan patients commits suicide, she decides to switch everyone on anti-depressants to placebos and do more talk therapy than drug therapy. This increases business in the local bar and the bar owner brings in a blues singer. This blues singer happened to have killed some sea monster's family and Steve the monster in question comes calling looking for the blues singer and food and sex.

This is a bizarre horror story. A horror story that is quirky and funny. Typical Christopher Moore with Pardon Me moments and just plain silliness, I found it to be very entertaining and off the wall funny

First Line: "September in Pine Cove is a sigh of relief, a nightcap, a long-deserved nap."
