Amercian Spoon Indigo Amercian Spoon Indigo - Russell Payne--OUT OF PRINT--

A hard boiled detective thriller with a cutlery bias. In a world where most of the people are made of kitchen utensils, Indigo Spoon is accustomed to taking on the NFC cases no-one else will touch, but the one case he turns down turns out to be the only one that matters. Mickey Spillane meets Douglas Adams meets ..... Button Moon.
