Mike Keeper, funeral director, wannabe detective, must see how capable of evil he is when a serial killer comes to his small town.
Mike Keeper, funeral director, wannabe detective, calorie-counter, doesn't drive. He rides a bike to a job he hates but can't quit because it makes his father happy. He shares a house with an obnoxious, layabout loudmouth amateur chef and undertaker just so he can save some money on the bills. He is in love with the girl who works at the bakery but the romance seems doomed; maybe because he killed her father.
Mike gets his chance to live his dream of being a detective inspector when a serial killer begins to cause havoc and hysteria in his small town. With the aid of his real detective friend Janet he must stop the evil Sam, or Spoon Slayer as Mike dubbed him. Mike has to deal with an increasing body count, a cast of friends and family out to embarrass and baffle him and a family business to uphold. All the while a killer is watching his every move.
