The Midnight Plan of the Repo Man by W Bruse Cameron ***

The Midnight Plan of the Repo Man by W Bruce Cameron is a mixture of zany mysteries (Carl Hiaasen or Tim Dorsey) and cozy mysteries (Janet Evanovich or Alexander McCall Smith) and supernatural mysteries (I don't usual read any othese).

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.
