Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

In the sixth book in Stephan Pastis's hilarious series, Timmy is being threatened and must rely on his new partner to solve the mystery -- and possibly save his life!

Timmy is in Key West, Florida, ostensibly for the honeymoon of his mother and Doorman Dave -- if they even got married, which Timmy doubts. Unfortunately for Timmy, crime doesn't take a vacation. And because Total has fled to Cuba seeking political asylum, Timmy must rely on a new partner for help: Doorman Dave's nephew Emilio. Meanwhile, a surprise newcomer shows up in Timmy's life and, as if things couldn't get more hectic, Timmy's pants have been stolen by a six-toed cat.

While his mother and doorman Dave celebrate their wedding, Timmy visits Florida where he forges a new partnership with Dave's nephew, Emilio, when a surprise newcomer shows up and he encounters a thieving six-toed cat.

Horn Book Review

Self-proclaimed detective Timmy Failure is back for his sixth caper, this one on his mom's honeymoon in Key West, Florida. Her husband, Doorman Dave, brings along his nephew Emilio Empanada, who becomes Timmy's new "unpaid intern" sidekick. Timmy again employs absurd logic to solve mysteries, including finding treasure from an unlikely source: his absentee dad. Bubbly black-and-white illustrations add visual humor on nearly every page.
