Janet Evanovich, co-writer (and daughter) Alex Evanovich and artist Joëlle Jones are headed back to Miami this November with book two of the trio's "Troublemaker" graphic novel series. Picking up where the last installment left off, "Troublemaker Book 2" continues to run its colorful cast of characters through the wringer as Sam Hooker discovers, among other things, that his boat has been unceremoniously stolen.

Here's Dark Horse's official synopsis:

Barnaby, Hooker, Rosa, Felicia, and Beans the St. Bernard set sail to the Florida Keys in order to find the wooden body of Baron Samedi that matches their recently acquired (and stolen) wooden hand. But in the world of Petro Voodoo a hand for a hand and a Baron for a boat is fair play. When the Happy Hooker disappears from its mooring in the Keys, Barnaby and Hooker have to find a way back to Miami with the stolen body of Baron Samedi. Ransom notes for the Happy Hooker, a sack of snakes, and a ticked--off chicken leave only one place safe enough to hide a body . . . Hooker's mom's house--a situation that makes the sack of snakes look like chump change.
