Because in the case of The Dead Lifeguard, the cover says sexy dead lifeguards on a beach but the pages say... lots of internal monologues at a country club in the woods? Seriously, where does this book take place? And is it possible for a book to have a small budget? Just a few of the important questions that WILL be answered on this ep. THIS EPISODE...
