The hokey and harmless-seeming police officer in 1950s West Texas likes to say ‘golly’ and ‘gee whiz’ in between slapping women around and staging sudden and brutal murders. Few in his small town want to confront the possibility that this gentleman-officer is capable of any sort of violence. As our narrator/serial killer states plainly the whys and wherefores of his extracurricular activities, his tone stays chummy and light. It’s pretty unsettling how wholesome and clean a psychopath can be. Creepy! Fun!

Todd Moster presents and signs The Underground Guide to Job Interviewing: A Quick and Irreverent Primer for the Working Professional
Chances are, you’ve had to interview for a job at some point in your life...And as the job-starved “recovery” grinds on, things aren’t getting any easier. The Underground Guide will help. Structured loosely as a coaching session in which the author – an executive recruiter who’s coached 1000s of job seekers – prepares the reader for an upcoming interview, it provides a funny, no-holds-barred account of the hurdles a job candidate faces, and how to overcome them.
