D. L. Gardnerabout this book: If you're looking for a laugh, for a light-hearted satire with some pretty amusing characters, then look no longer. The Peadlebodys, a dysfuntional vampire family is sure to win over your heart.
Boggling through life, overcoming a couple of mysterious deaths, Gerald, his widowed sister-in-law Ginger, and his nephew Raymond have inherited the huge, run down mansion of Benjamin Peadlebody, the elder. No one is all that happy about it either. Raymond moves out and falls in love with a mortal. Ginger moves to the Tree house around back, and Gerald is left with an uncooperative servant Richard Cottlebone, and the mystery of why his father died. A mystery he sets off on his own to solve, despite the risks.
Noted as having similarities to Confederacy of the Dunces, the Adams Family and similar spoofs, I think you'll find yourself laughing out loud.
Take a moment of your life and enjoy a good comedy. You won't be disappointed.
An Unconditional Mr. Peadlebody has won "Best Mystery" in the Veer West Screenplay competition.
