9780062392633: Secondhand Souls

In San Francisco, the souls of the dead are mysteriously disappearing--and you know that can't be good--in New York Times bestselling author Christopher Moore's delightfully funny sequel to A Dirty Job.

Something really strange is happening in the City by the Bay. People are dying, but their souls are not being collected. Someone--or something--is stealing them and no one knows where they are going, or why, but it has something to do with that big orange bridge. Death Merchant Charlie Asher is just as flummoxed as everyone else. He's trapped in the body of a fourteen-inch-tall -meat puppet- waiting for his Buddhist nun girlfriend, Audrey, to find him a suitable new body to play host.

To get to the bottom of this abomination, a motley crew of heroes will band together: the seven-foot-tall death merchant Minty Fresh; retired policeman turned bookseller Alphonse Rivera; the Emperor of San Francisco and his dogs, Bummer and Lazarus; and Lily, the former Goth girl. Now if only they can get little Sophie to stop babbling about the coming battle for the very soul of humankind . . .

Product Description:

In San Francisco, the souls of the dead are mysteriously disappearing and you know that can't be good in this delightfully funny sequel to the New York Times bestseller A Dirty Job.It seems like only yesterday that Charlie Asher took on a very dirty job collecting souls and keeping the Forces of Darkness at bay. But when Charlie faced off against these denizens of darkness he met his own end. Thanks to Audrey, his Buddhist-nun boo, his soul is still alive . . . inside a fourteen-inch-tall body made from lunchmeat and spare animal parts. Waiting for Audrey to find him a suitable new body to play host, Charlie has squirreled himself away from everyone, including his seven-year-old daughter, Sophie the Luminatus who enjoys spouting off about her power over the Underworld and her dominion over Death.Now some really freaky stuff is hitting San Francisco. People are dying, but their souls are not being collected. Someone or something is stealing them and no one knows where they are going, or why, but it has something to do with that big orange bridge . . ."

Review:

Disturbingly hilarious. And vice versa. --Jenny Lawson, #1 "New York Times" bestselling author of "Let's Pretend This Didn't Happen""

Writing should be fun. [Moore] takes that to a whole new level. . . .weird, expletive-laden, wildly entertaining . . . the perfect palate cleanser before the fall s literary entr?es. . . . You just can t make this stuff up. But Chrisopher Moore can. --Washington Post"

[A] perfect way to end your summer reading, proving once again that Christopher Moore is one of a kind. --Huffington Post"

This novel is as zany, heartfelt, irresistible, and flat out as strange as it is billed...."Secondhand Souls" does not disappoint as a sequel and stands up as a solid novel filled with fun, humor, horror, and a fantastical cast of characters. --New York Journal of Books"

Moore has created a world all his own, tackling dark subjects with a light-hearted irreverence. There s a surprising amount of pathos to be found in a story that centers around a squirrel-man with a giant dong. Moore fans, rejoice. --AV Club"
