Darcy Lemarsh is a loser. Troubled Angela Berry is a loser.
Professor Jason Berry is an alcoholic old loser. Three losers. But put them together and they are "Mad, bad, and dangerous to know".
Ailing Professor Berry has sold a novel, but there's no way he can go on a promotional tour so he enlists the aid of Angie's boyfriend, Darcy. As Darcy explains, "I have a hard time writing my name", but Darcy has a good memory and Berry prepares him for the ride ahead.
When Berry dies just before the tour, Darcy and Angie believe they can make it on their own.
But the tour quickly turns sour when a young man named Arthur Haviland accuses them of stealing his novel.
