Format: Paperback
After reading a copy of Shaun's first novel Wahoo Rhapsody (Atticus Fish Novel) which was given to me as a present, I was excited to see the return of Atticus Fish (the eccentric billionaire who sued God and won), in his new novel. I was not let down.

It's a compelling read, the perfect holiday book for relaxing on the beach or on a cozy sofa for a few hours.

The plot is fast moving and action packed, but easy to follow, and is filled with plenty of life like and relatable characters, including our hero Atticus Fish. As well as a number of over the top characters, such as Barbie the germaphobe, illegal treasure seller, which helps give the story an extra kick.

I'm not usually a fan of fishing or mystery books, but the El Dorado Blues incorporates these seamlessly in a book that appeals to my interests of travel, adventure and suspense, and almost creates an interest in fishing, almost!

A fun, action mystery placing you right in the center of the adventure, and a thoroughly good read.

A new novel from the creator of Atticus Finch, a follow up to Wahoo Rhapsody.

I think the author has probably been reading Carl Hiaasen, because there seems to be a lot of that writer's influence in this novel.

If you have read the first book you'll know Atticus Finch is an ultra-rich, retired lawyer who made a fortune suing God. Apalled by the way insurance companies use "Act of God" as an excusr for not paying claims, Atticus took them and the institutions of religion to the cleaners.

This time Atticus is up against treasure hunters who are looking for a fortune hidden by the Jesuits in Baja California. As always the book is peppered with bizarre characters. Toozie, a beatiful PI. Barbie, a woman terrified of germs, but totally amoral. Skegs, a giant native American. The lovely Molly, boat owner with attitude. The twins - one lacking an eve, one lacking both ears.

Take all these folk and mix them up, throw in a load of treasure, then sit back and watch the fireworks.

This book may not be to everybody's tast, but if you like Carl Hiaasen you will probably like this. For myself I thoroughly enjoyed it. Recommended.

The frantically paced intriguing plot of `El Dorada Blues' is set in appealing Baja California and there are numerous highly colourful and bizarre characters - yet the novel is only average - and hence 3-star rating. Based on the search for legendary treasure the reader may expect a mystery - but it is merely a set of `twists and turns'. `El Dorada Blues' is an awkward read which bounces along rather than unfolds logically, and though eventually merging, narration is as separate stories with the conclusion relying on a series of `Epilogues'. Perhaps best described as a `poolside holiday read'.

Homage must be a nice thing for an author. You spend your time coming up with a unique style and voice to write in, only for another author to come along and do something very similar. Wait one second! That's not nice! But is `El Dorado Blues' by Shaun Morey really homage to Carl Hiaasen, or does it stand on its own two feet? `El Dorado' is the second Atticus Fish mystery and it centres on a recently discovered Jesuit treasure trove in Mexico. Although Fish may be the star of the novel, he is just one part of what is an ensemble cast of characters. You see the various wheelings and dealings from the point of view of the criminal classes as much as you do from Fish's eye lens.

Morey concentrates on environmental crimes and eccentric criminals, very Hiaasen-esque and for all intents and purposes this feels like a lesser Hiaasen moved to Mexico. There is not quite the imagination and spark that the Florida based author brings to his work. This is best shown in the various bad guys on offer; they have interesting ticks, but are dispatched in a way that is almost throwaway.

The throwaway nature of the book is even more in evidence towards the end as the speed of the narrative increases. This is a fast paced book to begin with, averaging 4 pages a chapter. Morey writes like an out of control toddler losing their balance and speeding up towards the end to try and catch his feet. You end up with a fun thrill ride, but any sense is lost and the quick nature of the story leaves you confused. With some patience and original thinking Morey is onto something with the Atticus Fish Mysteries, but `El Dorado Blues' remains fun, but empty.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm always a little cautious when an author is described as being like another ... particularly when that writer is Carl Hiaasen, whose fast paced, anarchic style sits with me very well.

El Dorado Blues is a second Atticus Fish novel, and whilst I wish I had read Wahoo Rhapsody first, it was not essential.

Morey shares Hiassen's pace and colour, but it would be a mistake to think of him as a clone. There is a different style here, the story is strong enough for this kind of light reading, and I found that I worked my way through El Dorado Blues pretty rapidly (I am normally a read in bed and fall asleep person) ... This time I took advantage of some decent weather and read it over a weekend.

The chapters are short (which I like) and although I struggled with some of the fishing references (shades of Hiassen) I got the gist.

Without spoiling the story, El Dorado Blues is a witty tale of treasure, good guys, bad guys, and pursuit. A few strange characters are thrown into the melting pot and I was hooked.

A good read, and I have already bought Wahoo Rhapsody for the next sunny weekend.
