Holy Moly: A Novel by Ben Rehder


Good satire has to be based on some semblance of fact for it to work and this wickedly twisted mystery scathingly satirizes the televangalism industry.

When backhoe operator Hollis Farley is found dead from an arrow injury on a construction site owned by an expanding televangist organization, Blanco County Game Warden John Marlin is assigned the case. In the fine tradition of Carl Hiaasen and Tim Dorsey, Rehder creates a slapstick world of deceit, violence and foolishness.

If you're looking for a fun read that spoofs and skewers religion, academia and archaelogy, look no further than this page turner. Check catalog for availability.
