After accidentally getting himself involved in a murder investigation, John Fiction is contracted to find a missing person. While he has finally landed himself a job, at least temporarily, he finds that the position offers far more excitement than he could ever anticipate. His 'people skills' and haphazard detective work again have him caught up in a string of unusual and sometimes bizarre events. John is introduced to the world of gaming and electronics, where he and his flip-phone fit like a square peg in a round hole. In his attempts to piece things together, he ends up on a road trip with his fiancée's 15 year old son Kenzo. They make some new friends who become a part of the adventure. Oh yes, and of course, don't forget the coffee.
