Dillinger Flakewaiter is back, this time on the police force, where he is slowly losing his mind. More
Dillinger Flakewaiter endured the hospitality of the Hanoi Hilton; now that the war is over, what’s a fellow to do? In Dillinger’s case, it is obvious; be a cop – an unorthodox flatfoot with a fuse shorter than a viper’s strike. After being ordered to get counselling, thanks to the instructions of the very delicious Doctor Dolores Watchman, he starts to keep a diary, and embarks on that journey to ‘where the hell’ where he soon runs into old friends Lucy and Bob God. In his quest to learn right from wrong, to search for that unanswerable question of the viability of God and the devil, to identify good and bad absolutely, he takes a tour in a borrowed Porche, watches the ocean waves, and performs a few miracles of his own, all in the name of God, or a reasonable facsimile thereof. Will the D-Man live long enough to find definitive answers for those nebulous questions and ideals that plague mankind?
