Living on Borobo Reef is tough, especially if you're a spud who's down on his luck. Ex-detective Tedrick Gritswell just wants to be left alone, like any decent octopus deserves, but a visit from a drop-dead gorgeous dame coupled with a whole lot of pestering from an annoying cuttlefish sees him take up the case of a missing VIP.
