"Denny Braintree, a wisecracking loner devoted to model trains, finds himself stranded in late-winter Vermont. His night at the hotel begins with promise, but then his prospective one-night stand walks out on him. Leaving town, Denny is mistaken for lookalike Homer Dumpling, a popular native son who mysteriously disappeared from town three years earlier. Instead of correcting the mistake, Denny dons his new identity as easily as a Vermonter's winter fleece, and a good thing too--the woman he had hoped to sleep with has turned up dead, and Denny is the chief suspect"--Publisher

"Features two mysteries by David Carkeet. In Double Negative, the Wabash Institute is dedicated to studying verbal skills in toddlers, but its scholars are far crankier than the rugrats they work with. When one of them is murdered, can their resident genius solve the case without canceling himself out? In From Away, a model train buff is stranded in a wintry Vermont town after his one-night stand walks out on him. Good thing the villagers think he's a native son who disappeared three years ago. Because that one-night stand just turned up dead!" -- Amazon.com

Campus sexpot : a memoir by David Carkeet( )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Carkeet uproariously recaptures his stunned, youthful reaction to the novel's sleazy take on his hometown. The innocent nowhere burg where he despaired of ever getting any "action" became, in the pages of Campus Sexpot, a sink of iniquity echoing with "animal cries of delight." Blood pounded, dams of passion broke, and marriages and careers - not to mention the basics of good writing - went straight to hell."
