About this item

"The most engaging detective in decades" returns to his big-top roots to solve some bizarre murders - but this time he's working without a net (Library Journal) . With a genius IQ, a past career as a circus acrobat, and a black belt in karate, criminology professor Dr. Robert Frederickson - better known as "Mongo the Magnificent" - has a decidedly unusual background for a private investigator. He also just so happens to be a dwarf. Mongo's days as a professional acrobat are long over, but when he learns his former boss is down on his luck - and the circus has been sold - he heads to Florida to rally his fellow ex-performers to help buy back the spectacle they once called home. With seductive snake charmer Harper Rhys-Whitney in tow, Mongo sets out to make a deal with the traveling show's mysterious new owners.
