1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Officer Dibble VINE VOICE on 15 July 2012
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Highly enjoyable modern crime fiction from this prolific American author. Chris Mankowski is a cop in a mid-career crisis. He elects to swop the joys of the 'Bomb Squad' for a move into Vice despite a hilariously abortive job interview. The book gets away to a flier with a cracking first chapter.

From his first case, the move proves disastrous and the book recounts his attempts to simultaneously salvage his career whilst catching the baddies. The 'Freaky Deaky' is a wild dance but also relates to the 'freaks' a USA slang term for eccentrics or oddballs often politically motivated.

Another reviewer recommended I give Mr Leonard another try and I'm glad I did. This was a short easy read that sped by. Plenty of humour and often adult content. The plot has a couple of aspects that grate; for example, the minder Donnell missed his vocation as a sniffer dog! But in the end this added to a slightly tongue-in-cheek style. Liked this and I can now see why Mr Leonard has so many fans.

This novel contains all that is brilliant about Elmore Leonard and features what has to be the greatest opening chapter ever written.

Fantastic book, if you've never read a Elmore Leonard novel - your missing out on such rich dialogue and interesting characters! THis guy isn't described as a legend for nothing.

I read this as a result of seeing Leonard's obit. and realising I knew nothing of him. It is typical American cop/detective writing, tightly organised and plotted with lovely set pieces and an unusual sense of irony. The characterisation is slick rather than rich, the dialogue sparkles and the whole thing is a great light read. I shall try a few more of his considerable output.
