Where the hell is Carrie Crowfoot? Jim Otis, police chief of Hercules, Wis., doesn't know. But he suspects that the disappearance of the popular high-school cheerleader connects somehow to his nemesis, teenage femme fatale, Josie Dobbs. But Josie has left town for college in Philadelphia. How does a scheming seductress in Philly pull off an abduction a thousand miles away? Meanwhile, how can Jim Otis ― who does NOT understand women ― cope with all the other women in his life? His "trouble" includes his girlfriend Carol, his ex-wife Connie, his daughter Natalie, his ex-paramour Elena, Native American activist Angelina Killdeer, superannuated hippie Crystal MacDougal and Town Council scold Electra Grimes ― not to mention Minnie Trout, Maisie Hopkins and the enigmatic Professor Swerdlow. All Jim Otis can do ― to save Carrie ― is plug away, follow his cop instincts, and get by with the help of his (female) friends.
