Fat Ollie's Book by Ed McBain
Detective Oliver Wendell Weeks is obese, ignorant, bigoted, and he's written a police mystery novel. It's a fictional account of his own experiences, but has instead used a thin, beautiful woman named Olivia Watts as his protagonist. On his way to have his only manuscript copied, he responds to a call about the murder of a city councilman, and while there, the manuscript is stolen from his car. Fat Ollie is more concerned with getting his manuscript back while his colleagues try to solve the murder. Ed McBain has written over 50 police mystery novels, and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says of Fat Ollie's Book, "His latest is hilariously funny, but it's also suspenseful and well-plotted and has enough twists to keep the reader from putting it down."
