A Spider for Loco Shoat: A Novel by Douglas C. Jones

The summer of 1907 is beginning to settle on western Arkansas, and seven-year-old Jay Bird Joey Schwartz, resident orphan of a Ft. Smith bordello, has taken to spending his evenings in the National Cemetery, listening to the frogs and eating stolen pie. But when he tells the pretty ladies at home that he saw a fairy prince napping between the graves, and when the murdered body of one of Ft. Smiths most powerful citizens is discovered by the cemetery caretaker, Jay Bird Joey quickly becomes a witness in a complicated crime. Former Deputy Federal Marshall Oscar Schiller, the same cocaine-licking, nearsighted investigator who solved The Search for Temperance Moon, finds it odd that the sheriffs office is so quick to close the case and brush off Jay Bird Joeys observation - especially since the victims mistress is nowhere to be found. Suspecting foul play, Schiller sets out in search of answers - and finds savage violence and the haunting interrogation of a killer.
