Synopsis

The Curious Eat Themselves  finds P.I. Cecil Younger in a jam. Louise Root had  hired him after she was raped at the Otter Creek  gold mine where she was working as a cook. She was  the best friend of his ex-girlfriend, Hannah. Louise  had come to him for help and now she's being  fished out of the ocean, her throat slashed. He has  disappointed Hannah once again yet suddenly everyone  wants Younger's help: his old friend, Doggy, the  D.A.; his autistic roommate, Toddy, whose  Labrador retriever has disappeared; an  image-conscious environmental activist; even the sleazy  executives of Global Mining, whose interest in the case  is suspicious. This is no longer a simple  investigation, but a complicated murder case involving  Global's environmentally incorrect waste disposal  program and the implications of dumping cyanide into  the ground. Dead bodies are piling up faster than  Younger can count and he has his hands full just  trying to stay alive, tracking down the suspects  and some missing documents which could lead to the  truth.
