Bad Monkey ★☆☆☆☆

Bad Monkey - Carl Hiaasen, Arte Johnson

Abandoned at 21% completed. This is supposed to be an irreverent spoof of a murder mystery, but I felt the lighthearted approach to the main character sodomizing his lover's husband with a vacuum cleaner attachment was simply too offensive to continue reading. Two topics that I can't tolerate being used for humor are sexual assault and family violence.
