When the owner of the Bully Pulpit Diner decided to stop letting servers accept tips, he figured the raise he gave them would keep them happy.
Apparently not. Or were some of his other hobbies what got poor Ben Addison killed?
Police Chief Elizabeth Friedman contends with, angry food servers, rowdy frat brothers at Sweathog Agricultural College, a batch of customers who seem to know nothing, and a thief who must have really wanted something from Ben.
One of them keeps a good secret in the small town of Logland, Illinois.
Join Elizabeth, Medical Examiner Skelly, and an offbeat group of characters who will tickle your funny bone.
