In this delightfully weird and funny sequel to the New York Times bestseller A Dirty Job, the souls of the dead are mysteriously disappearing – and you know that can’t be good.
Something really strange is happening in the City by the Bay. People are dying, but their souls are not being collected for ascension. Someone or something is stealing them and no one knows where they are going, or why, but it has something to do with that big orange bridge. Death merchant Charlie Asher is just as flummoxed as everyone else. He’s still trapped in the body of a fourteen-inch-tall “meat puppet” waiting for his Buddhist nun girlfriend, Audrey, to find him a suitable new body to play host. To get to the bottom of this abomination, a motley crew of heroes will band together: the seven-foot-tall death merchant Minty Fresh; intrepid grandmother-nannies, Mrs. Ling and Mrs. Korjev; retired policeman-turned-bookseller Alphonse Rivera; the Emperor of San Francisco and his dogs, Bummer and Lazarus; and Lily, the former Goth-girl. Now, if only they can get little Sophie to stop babbling about the coming battle for the very soul of humankind as she plays with her two pony-sized hellhounds.
Christopher Moore is the author of fourteen previous bestselling novels, including Lamb, The Stupidest Angel, Fool, Sacré Bleu, A Dirty Job, and The Serpent of Venice. He lives in San Francisco, California.
Important signing line details:
Priority signing line vouchers are available with book purchase. Attendees may reserve a spot in the signing line by purchasing a copy Secondhand Souls from Bookshop Santa Cruz before the event (in store or online). At the signing, voucher holders will be called up to enter signing line according to the number on their voucher. Each voucher holder can have multiple books signed, but only two can be personalized. Attendees with very large numbers of books will be asked to wait until the end of the line. Moore will not have time for posed photos, but time-efficient photos from the signing line are allowed.
