A novel by

A murder has been committed. Clues found by constructing a jigsaw puzzle and delving through a large number of library books let Cy and Lou know where they can find the body and who the murderer is. Sort of. The victim can be found in one of about seventy houses and they have only the first name of the murderer. Well, it's one of eight first names. They knock on doors with hilarious results until they finally find one house that smells worse than the others. Once they find and identify the victim, Sam is able to provide eight last names to go with those first names. Once they question those eight people, they find they have six people who were ready to push each other out of the way to be the first to shoot the victim, one who seems to like the person, and one who seems hardly to know the person. It's time to use everything they know and each clue and message they are given to deduce which of the eight is the murderer.
