All bets are off when Chicago detective Chance Purdue protects a gambler with a target on his head in this PI parody from the author of The Dada Caper. "Bet-a-Bunch" Dugan is being hunted by International DADA (Destroy America, Destroy America) conspirators, a terrorist organization out for control of the world's oil market. Dugan needs more than a little luck to walk away unscathed. He needs a Chance, and though he knows that half of Purdue's reputation is that of a guy you are aching to punch, the other half is that he's a dogged, if occasionally doomed, investigator. No matter where Purdue's leads take him, though, he always seems to be one step behind DADA. As a hapless Chance watches DADA's deadly scheme move forward, a siren named Brandy Alexander enters the picture and things finally fall into place, or so Chance hopes... Praise for Ross H. Spencer's The Dada Caper "Parodies of the private-eye novel come and go. Here is The Dada Caper by Ross H. Spencer. It has every cliche down pat, including rat-tat-tat writing in which paragraphs are seldom more than one sentence. . . . The hero is a private eye who is always tailing the wrong people and hitting the wrong guys. The Dada Caper is wild, shrewd, mad and unexpectedly funny." -The New York Times
