The Curious Eat Themselves finds P.I. Cecil Younger in a jam. Louise Root had hired him after she was raped at the Otter Creek gold mine where she was working as a cook. She was the best friend of his ex-girlfriend, Hannah. Louise had come to him for help and now she's being fished out of the ocean, her throat slashed. He has disappointed Hannah once again yet suddenly everyone wants Younger's help: his old friend, Doggy, the D.A. his autistic roommate, Toddy, whose Labrador retriever has disappeared, an image-conscious environmental activist, even the sleazy executives of Global Mining, whose interest in the case is suspicious. This is no longer a simple investigation, but a complicated murder case involving Global's environmentally incorrect waste disposal program and the implications of dumping cyanide into the ground. Dead bodies are piling up faster than Younger can count and he has his hands full just trying to stay alive, tracking down the suspects and some missing documents which could lead to the truth.
