Many of the characters are comedic and exaggerated, like Kermit "he was shaped a little like a frog" Kramer, a reincarnation of Mrs Malaprop,
Ya know, if the goose really attacked you, they should euphemize it.The crimes were more strange than threatening, like a reclaiming a car protected by a goose.
The main mystery was solving a long-ago murder with the aid of the murder victim's ghost. Do you remember Topper?
This combination should be a fun light read. I found it mostly confusing.
