Description
We have it from a reliable source that a certain author of a wildly successful series of books about a boy wizard, and whose much-anticipated novel for adults described events following a casual vacancy on an English village's parish council, had nothing whatsoever to do with this potty-mouthed parody of The Casual Vacancy. Nothing ever seems to happen in the sleepy English town of Mumford—unless you count the man with the axe in his back, staggering down the street getting blood everywhere and leaving a vacancy on the Parish Council. Into the fray steps DI Bradley of the C.I.D., who appears to all the world to be a buffoon incapable of detecting his own backside. Which indeed he is. He teams up with an alcoholic, drug-addled writer researching a detective novel, and together they will blunder towards the identity of the "vacant casualty"—hopefully before everyone else in the town is murdered as well. Patty O'Furniture—the pseudonym of Arthur Fellowsnippe-Hopmyrtle, better known as British humor writer Bruno Vincent, co-author (with Jon Butler) of Do Ants Have Arseholes? and (with Charles Dickens) of A Christmas Carol II: Contagion—gives us aliens, farting tea-ladies, car chases, serial killers, and lashings and lashings of tortoise milk.
