I believe the book's aim is adaptation as the basis of a film script with some supposedly comic genius of an actor taking the starring role; and, if a film version is ever concocted, Its box office marketing would probably emphasise the opportunities it would afford to depict sexual activities in a series of routine pick-ups.
The plot was infantile, the ending contrived, the characters had the personalities of stick insects and the book, considering its very favourable reviews, was a huge disappointment. Please spend your precious time reading something worthwhile rather than this.
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
This is another exciting Dev Haskell novel. I absolutely LOVED it!
Dev Haskell is a fantastic character! He's a Private Investigator, with what I would call an unhealthy obsession with female anatomy, who likes to fly by the seat of his pants. However, I keep wondering how he manages to get himself into so much trouble without even trying! I would like to know what he may have done in a previous life to continuously be in the wrong place at the wrong time! Talk about bad karma! I do love him though!
This is a fantastic story! Once I started reading this book, I struggled to put it down! The action and danger is intense, and Dev is his usual, bumbling self. I found myself giggling at some scenes (probably inappropriately), but there are some really witty ones that tickled my funny bone! There are some interesting characters that come into Dev's life. One of them is Candi. She is an older woman, and a dominatrix in a BDSM club. I was very happy for Dev, as he seemed to settle down once he met her. There are a few BDSM scenes that are alluded to, but not actually shown in detail.
The other character that comes into Dev's life is his new client, Swindle Lawless. She is an intriguing character. She comes across as shallow and flighty, but as the story continued, it showed that there's a depth to her that was hidden.
There is mystery, danger and adventure aplenty in this novel. I loved how the story flowed, and the ending has left me wanting more! I am now looking forward to reading more of Dev's adventures in the future!
Mike Faricy has done it again!Read more ›
Thats not the real problem though, which is the all pervading presence of booze. Dev is now regularly paralytic. His 'friend with benefits' Heidi, who was a good influence on him, now also gets regularly wasted. His other good influence, Aaron the cop, now has just walk on parts. And his new best friend attorney is another drunk. So please Mike, cut down on the booze.
Still a good read, but now not sure how far I'll take the series - I'll try the next and decide.
Once again, the loveable train wreck that is Dev Haskell gets himself into another situation that leaves you howling at his antics. He always manages to turn a bad situation into a disaster, and is expert at being in the wrong place at the wrong time. And you can't help watching! In this one, Dev becomes involved with characters running a slightly kinky nightclub and gets himself spanked, arrested, and suspected as the perp in a couple murders. Business as usual for Dev.
Faricy is a master at coming up with ridiculous scenarios for Dev to bumble into. His stories are tongue-in-cheek dark humor, and highly entertaining quick reads. I've often compared him to Robert Parker, and I think each book I've read has gotten better. Keep writing, Mike!
