About the Book

The National Sewer Agency is spying on people’s toilets, looking for food terrorists…

Food Enforcement Agent Jason Frolick believes in America. He believes in eating air. He struggles to get the food monkey off his back. As part of the Global War On Fat, his job is to put food terrorists in Fat Camp.

When a pizza dealer gets whacked in the park across the street from the Thin House, the Prophet Jones himself asks Frolick to investigate. For the first time ever, Frolick solves a murder—but what he finds out shakes his faith.

Will he ever be able to eat air again?

About the Author

Former Lonely Planet author J.M. Porup now spins a tale or two for his daily crust. He has lived on three continents, speaks six languages, and has worked as a kelp harvester, apple tree pruner, goatherd, cowherd, computer programmer, copywriter and journalist. American by birth, Australian by choice, Colombian by marriage and Canadian by accident, he currently lives in the Oriental Republic of Uruguay. His first editor--way back in the mid-90s--called him a loose cannon. Ever since, Porup has done his best to live up to that high standard.
