    DescriptionIn Christopher Moore's ingenious debut novel, we meet one of the most memorably mismatched pairs in the annals of literature. The good-looking one is one-hundred-year-old ex-seminarian and 'roads' scholar Travis O'Hearn. The green one is Catch, a demon with a nasty habit of eating most of the people he meets. Behind the fake Tudor facade of Pine Cove, California, Catch sees a four-star buffet. Travis, on the other hand, thinks he sees a way of ridding himself of his toothy travelling companion. The winos, neo-pagans, and deadbeat Lotharios of Pine Cove, meanwhile, have other ideas. And none of them is quite prepared when all hell breaks loose.

    Review quote
    Wickedly funny Waterstone's Books Quarterly Christopher Moore is a very sick man, in the very best sense of the word Carl Hiaasen, Humour that seamlessly blends lunacy with larceny ... habit forming zaniness USA Today Moore is endlessly inventive ... This cetacean picaresque is no fluke - it is a sure winner Publishers Weekly
