Become a fake detective (the psychic part, fake or not, is up to you) just by reading Psych’s Guide to Crime Fighting for the Totally Unqualified by Shawn Spencer with Burton Guster (who don’t actually exist outside of a TV show). Actually, you only have to read page 1 to become a detective because Shawn says so. Topics include setting up shop, picking your sidekick (who is definitely not a partner), working with cops and coroners of all kinds, and wrapping up your case with an awesome breakdown. There are recipes by Harry Spencer (bath salts) and Mr. Yang (twice baked potatoes) and magazine articles about/by such annoyances as Declan Rand and Cameron Luntz and an illuminating interview with Chief Vick and her sister, Commander Dunlap. Sprinkled throughout are very important quizzes (you must pass to be a detective… or not since you became a detective on page 1) and thumbprint doodles from the creative brain (and thumb) of Juliet O’Hara. This book is, as one would expect, hilarious. A must read for Psychos and fans of delicious flavor.
