This is an unusual read, basically it's a fast paced, at times cartoon like, detective story with lots of gags. The humour is intense and slick, sometimes corny sometimes sophisticated.Honestly I recon if you don't laugh once you have no sense of humour.
The plot twists and turns but dosen't lead to pointless dead ends. It is kind of like Runyon but you genuinely won't have read anything like it before. At the end of it I felt like I had been entertained - which is not something a lot of authors care to do anymore. It may not be "High Brow" Art with a big A but it's got far more bang for your buck than a bucket of popcorn and some tinseltown fodder.
Yeah - definately worth a read.
