Leonard Kinsey hit one out the (theme) park with HABST AND THE DISNEY SABOTEURS.  His fictional follow-up to OUR KINGDOM OF DUST pulled me in almost immediately and he kept his foot on the gas pedal for the entire book, creating a funny and exciting novel about every Disney fan's dreams.

I don't want to spoil the book here, so I'll just mention that the story involves Reginald "Habst" Habstermeister and his backstage explorations of Disney's Florida theme parks.  Habst uses his fake cast member credentials and more than a little cunning to gain access to the behind-the-scenes areas of several rather unpopular attractions and posts the videos to his YouTube channel in order to earn Google Ad revenue.  When "Sat-Com" contacts him he begins uploading them to another location on the Darknet, and after he posts his videos, it seems something bad happens to said attraction.  It doesn't take long for Habst and Disney Security Chief Charlie Walker (you might remember him from HOLLOW WORLD?) to link the two.  What follows is an exciting adventure to find the culprits and find out what their intentions are.

I would recommend this book to most anyone, but especially to mature fans of the Disney parks.  (By mature, I mean, this isn't for kids.  Or for the easily offended.  Or those who like their Disney sanitized and idealized.)  Anyone can enjoy it, but my five-star rating (forthcoming on Amazon) is because I am that sort of Disney fan.

I hope Kinsey's work gets a wide audience because it's that good!
