Shelfari edited the description of Acceptable In The Eighties Tuesday, March 13, 2012.
It sounds like easy money-a bit of driving work for enigmatic 'Investigative Consultant' Paul Zoff. But when struggling comic book dealer Rob Nelson takes on the job, he finds out there's a bit more to it than just driving. Millionaire carpet king and retired cat burglar Jack Horner has had some rare comics stolen and and his right-hand man shot dead in a robbery, and thinks Zoff and Nelson might be the men to recover his property. But when two gunmen start to show an interest in Zoff's investigation and things start to turn nasty, there's only one place to go...Whitby. Very nice this time of year... A rollicking Noir-ish tale of murder, mayhem and synth-pop, 'Acceptable In The Eighties' is funnier than 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo', and shorter than 'The Big Sleep'.
