Bull's eye---if not for squeamish.
It’s no secret that Fredric Brown holds a special place in Skyboat’s heart, that part of ourselves we reserve for fabulous, suspenseful tales full of sci-fi, surprise endings, and humor.
THE DEAD RINGER is one of Brown’s detective stories, the second in his beloved “Ed & Am Hunter” series. This one finds Ed and his Uncle Am working in a traveling carnival through the Midwest. Bodies keep piling up, and Ed falls head over heels in love, but soon it’s up to him and Uncle Am to find, among the freaks of the carnival, a killer who chooses the victims by size.
