With its acid edge and wicked humor, JL Davis (writing as Jeff Davis) delivers a rapid fire depiction of bureaucracy gone wild that digs underneath the fingernails of the typical blue collar worker, satirizing both modern day relationships and business life. Specifically, if we can't stand our jobs and families, live for the day to escape!
Unlucky in love and trapped in a dead-end job, Jack Snaggler thinks his fortune is about to change when he meets a drop-dead gorgeous brunette named Paradise. Think again. When a shady fast food chef goes missing and coworkers start mysteriously disappearing, Jack finds himself framed for murder. If he wants to stay alive long enough to ever see Paradise again, he'll first need to escape a conspiracy that at each turn, involves almost everyone he knows. Living under the umbrella of a politically incorrect and bureaucratic world are people like Ed Shoemaker, a disgruntled office worker who wants to off his wife and flee to Fiji; Eileen Klump, a secretary in the throes of menopause who suffers from periodic breakdowns and intermittent stays at the local mental facility; Lance Sheppard, who makes his living the good old-fashioned way: disability fraud. Regardless of the premise, the book punctures the fabric of what's simply funny with a pervasive shadow of underlying truth regarding Middle America and the world at large.
Part Big Brother, part corporate mindset, part 60s cool, and part dysfunctional love interest. The road to paradise has never been so tainted or hilarious.
