Enhance your purchase
The third book in the wildly popular series of horror/comedy novels featuring Andrew Mayhem!
In GRAVEROBBERS WANTED (NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY), he took a job digging up a shallow grave.
It turned out badly.
In SINGLE WHITE PSYCHOPATH SEEKS SAME, he took a job as a bodyguard at a seance.
It turned out worse.
But now, meet the new, improved Andrew Mayhem. He has a real job. He’s a better father and husband. And he’s vowed to quit accepting money from strange women in coffee shops to perform tasks that go terribly, terribly wrong.
This time he’s just taking a relaxing camping trip with his family and best friend. No shortcuts. The gas tank is full. The sinister warning of the crazy old man is taken seriously.
Unfortunately, when you’re Andrew Mayhem, you just can’t help being attacked by a group of savage killers bent on inflicting ghastly torture and bringing horrific death. Relentlessly pursued through a booby-trapped forest, it’s one crisis after another as Andrew fights to protect his family, loses a body part or two, and faces the single darkest moment of his entire life.
Action-packed, twisted, and completely outrageous, CASKET FOR SALE (ONLY USED ONCE) is the funniest and scariest Andrew Mayhem adventure yet!

There is literally nothing believable about the situation or any of the characters here, protagonists and antagonists alike. When I wasn't bored, I was frankly stunned at how over-the-top stupid the scenario in the book was. While there were a few amusing moments, it fails to capture the easy, likable narration of its predecessors and instead piles on the gore with a sort of human/mechanical chop-shop and a MASSIVE amount of plot holes and threads that never get resolved. I understand the appeal of Mayhem books is that they're wild and wacky and gruesome, but this was about as engaging and genuine as a piece of fifth-grade horror movie fan-fiction.
I was SO disappointed by this one. It's so short that it needed a condensed, cohesive plot to carry itself through, and instead it just drags on and on with constant catch/chase sequences and unbelievable violence that is so outlandish it isn't scary, it's just ridiculous. Worse still, a bit plot point is Mayhem's completely unwarranted dislike of his best friend's new girlfriend (which gets resolved as predictably as you'd imagine), and it really paints him in an unpleasant light. I didn't like him much after reading this, and I definitely didn't warm up to his wife; several chapters are narrated from her point of view, and she's about as emotional and engaging as a robot... even when the situations she's in should be tense and scary, her boring, uninteresting delivery renders them snore-worthy.
Believe me, nobody is more disappointed by this bad review that I was. I thought I'd found a new favourite author and read the entire trilogy in one afternoon. Not so, I'm afraid.
