In Minneapolis, the FBI Bureau of False Flags Ops (BOFFO) Agent Cadence Jones suffers from multiple personality disorder, which is an asset for the mission of this unit filled with psychotics and an occasional functional neurotic. She and her partner sociopath George Pinkham are assigned to ending the reign of terror of Threefer Killer, who murders people in groups of three leaving behind newspaper articles and nothing else.

The serial killer begins sending messages to Cadence and her two sisters Shiro and Adrienne. Depending on which MPD is working determines whether Cadence is concerned or not. However, anyone who is from the Twin Cities knows better than to mess with the Jones. More concerned to Cadence as she switches from one personality to another is she falls in love with her best friend's visiting brother.

Clearly over the top of the Prospect Park Water Tower and Deming Heights Park combined, Me, Myself and Why? Is a zany dark humorous police procedural. Not for all of MaryJanice Davidson's fans especially the paranormal shoe lovers, this tale lampoons how easily society conveniently catalogues people to make them fit inside a file drawer. The strong radically offbeat edgy cast make for a madcap Minnesota mystery, in which ironically MPD sufferer holds the plot together as readers will wonder whether to label her as the main character or characters.

    Awful

    If I could have given this book a half star, I would have. It was easily one of the worst books I've read. I love this author and was disappointed with this book. It's confusing and seems to try to make mental illness something funny and sexy. The worst part is that this book is a series! Save your money and purchase any of her other outstanding books but skip this one.

    Bleck

    I've read other books by this author that were clever and made me laugh. This one was not like those. I never cared for the mystery in it, and the mental illness was disturbing.

    Don't waste your time!

    I love the Queen Betsy and werewolf books. In this book, I found the main character(s) annoying (that transition?? urgh!!), most of the characters unengaging, and (even while embracing 'suspension of disbelief') the plot premise unsustainable. I thought 'where can this trilogy go from here??' Only up, I suppose. She should fire her editor for letting this one slip through the cracks. I was VERY disappointed and look forward to less of THIS nonsense and more Queen Betsy-type paranormal stories.
