Psych's Guide to Crime Fighting for the Totally Unqualified
by Shawn Spencer
by Burton Guster
Psych is a quick-witted comedy/drama starring James Roday as young police consultant Shawn Spencer who solves crimes with powers of observation so acute that Santa Barbara PD detectives think he’s psychic. Psych also stars Dulé Hill as Shawn’s best friend and reluctant sidekick, Gus, and Corbin Bernsen as his disapproving father, Henry, who ironically was the one who honed his son’s “observation” skills as a child. Also featured are Timothy Omundson, Maggie Lawson and Kirsten Nelson. As with Monk, Psych mixes comedy with its crime and features a somewhat eccentric lead character – Shawn, a police Psychic with absolutely no psychic abilities.
So Shawn is an expert on crime fighting for the totally unqualified, and with Gus’s help, will show readers how to prepare for a stake out, profile suspects, solve cold cases, sneak snacks at the crime scene, and create disguises from a $.99 store. All with the trademark Psych humor.
