Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove by Christopher Moore

Book Description

The town psychiatrist has decided to switch everybody in Pine Cove, California, from their normal antidepressants to placebos, so naturally - well, to be accurate, artificially - business is booming at the local blues bar. Trouble is, those lonely slide-guitar notes have also attracted a colossal sea beast named Steve with, shall we say, a thing for explosive oil tanker trucks. Suddenly, morose Pine Cove turns libidinous and is hit by a mysterious crime wave. A beleaguered constable has to fight off his own gonzo appetites to find out what's wrong and what, if anything, to do about it.

But before he can act any further, there is a fuel tanker explosion, a missing child and the people of the town begin to act strangely. The occasionally psychotic Molly Michon, ex-scream queen of the B movie silver screen seems intent on reprising her role as Kendra, Warrior Babe of the Outland; friend and biologist Gabe Fenton is measuring the serotonin levels of his tagged rats; Valerie Riordan, the town psychiatrist, decides to swap all her patients from anti-depressants to placebos; black bluesman, Catfish Jefferson, playing in Molly Sands’s Head of the Slug Saloon, attracts the widowed Estelle Joyet, but also, apparently, a shape-changing sea monster later...
