Inspired by true events!

Fans of funny detective stories, meet Maynard Soloman, gal-damn detective. Some say he's crusty, profane and clueless. If you ask him, he solves the world's problems one case at a time.

In this misadventure, the hapless private investigator is hired to track down a missing college student. Maynard heads to a strip club to investigate, but there's a problem. His decaying RV craps out halfway there.

To continue the case, he'll need to do battle with his worst enemy: The city bus. Buckle up, things are going to get weird.

BONUS: Includes "Maynard's Guide to Tipping."
