The Mysterious Bookshop

Willeford, Charles, The Shark-Infested Custard



Larry Dolman is a rather literal minded ex-cop who now works private security. Eddie Miller is an airline pilot who's studying to get his real estate license. Don Luchessi is a silver salesman who's separated from his wife but too Catholic to get a divorce. Hank Norton is a drug company rep who gets four times as many dames as any of the other guys. They are all regular guys who like to drink, play cards, meet broads, and shoot a little pool. But when a friendly bet goes horribly awry, they find themselves with two dead bodies on their hands and a homicidal husband in the wings—and acting more like hardened criminals than upstanding citizens.

They're just four regular guys who live in a "singles only" Miami Beach apartment building--ex-cop Larry Dolamn, airline pilot Eddie Miller, salesman Don Luchessi, and drug company rep Hank Norman. But their swinging lifestyles take a major dive when Hank's quest for a date lands him in the shark-infested dark side of murder, Miami style.
