Hot water is nothing new for Stan Kraychik, a smart-mouthed Boston hairdresser who gave up a career in psychology to "shrink 'em at the sink" instead. When a vacationing National Park ranger turns up dead in Boston, Stan is implicated in the murder, and must find the killer to clear his own name. With an eye for detail and a mettlesome spirit, Stan finds plenty of clues, but he also confronts the police lieutenant assigned to the case, a man with little tolerance for the world of fashion and style, or for Stan's cheeky attitude.
With a sharp tongue as his best defense, a most unlikely detective uses even more unlikely techniques to close the loop and get the killer.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Stan Kraychik is a very swanky gay hairdresser in Boston. I don't remember much of the plot, but he stumbles on a mystery and runs around Boston trying to solve it. The dialogue was witty; the plot engaging enough to finish, but it's a read it once and pass it on book.
