Sleeping with the fishes

Horrible, horrible dreck. I bought this book new in a bookstore, paying full price + import costs, and I feel robbed.

The premise sounds fun: Fred is a half Mermaid half Human marine biologist, and she has to solve a mystery and choose between two romantic interests, and man and a merman.

But the jokes are contrived and unfunny, the characters paper thin - what little characterization there is just makes them extremely unlikable, and the plot is offensively stupid, with stupid people doing stupid things in order to advance the stupid plot, but not for any reasons that make sense logically or emotionally.

The cover is really pretty, though.
