Me & Snack McGhee

A novel by

Chance Dugan - retired at 33 because of a nuclear accident and living on board Chicago, a semi-derelict boat - and his buddy, Snack McGhee, keep getting innocently embroiled in other people's problems.
Like when Jinx's boyfriend sails off in her catamaran, leaving the diminutive woman destitute on the dock, Chance and Snack set off to track it down, and in doing so get involved in a drug bust and a murder.
Then an old-time gangster shows to reclaim a treasure he stashed on board Chicago before WW2, and falls dead on deck from a bullet wound. That starts a run of ancient mobsters looking for the Chicago's treasure. Only it ain't there.
And now about the drunken woman at a public library celebration, claims her feet were stolen, although she's ambulating on something down there, and when they find the thief, he's reclining with a knife in his chest. The Sheriff wants to know how come Chance is always around when a body shows up.
Then when a recluse, one of the richest men in the world, asks Chance to take his place, ride in his private Gulfstream to the north woods, a horticultural genius - or looney tunes crackpot - gets Chance and Snack wacko on Happy Tomatoes.
Finally, in a poignant love story, Chance's girlfriend wants to sneak into the Drum Point Lighthouse and make love on the old lighthouse keeper's bed, only it takes Chance and Snack as much planning as if they were after the Hope Diamond.
Oh and through it all, Al Capone disputes Chance's ownership of the Chicago, treating him with malevolent disdain in spite of his feeding her and cleaning out the litter box.
Damn cat.
