Farewell, My Lunchbag Book Cover

If danger is my business, then dinner is my passion. I’ll take any case if the pay is right. And what pay could be better than Mothloaf Surprise?

At least that’s what I thought. But in this particular case I bit off more than I could chew.

Cafeteria lady Mrs. Bagoong hired me to track down whoever was stealing her food supplies. The long, slimy trail led too close to my own backyard for comfort.

And much, much too close to my archenemy, Jimmy “King” Cobra. Without the help of Natalie and our school janitor, Maureen DeBree, I would’ve been gecko sushi.

A Raymond Chandler/Woody Allen literary blend.
