Product description

About the Author

The Dirty Lowdown called Mike Faricy America's hottest new mystery writer. Robert Carraher referred to him as Minnesota's Master of the Bizarre. Crime Scene referred to him as the next Carl Hiaasen. Crime Capers said; "Open at your own risk, you won't put him down." Under Cover wrote; "This guy is nuts and one hell of a lot of fun." The Irish Gazette referred to "The laugh a minute story lines of Faricy's deliciously engaging worlds." All his books are stand alone, they can be read in any order. Faricy's novels are filled with the sort of oddballs we're all curious about, but wisely prefer to keep at a distance. His characters serve not so much as an example as they do a warning to us all. None of them will be saving the world from terrorism, international banking conspiracies or coups to take over the government. Rather, Faricy's characters inhabit a world just below the surface of polite society. The circumstances they find themselves in are usually due to their own bad decisions, but then bad decisions make for interesting stories. Faricy's Dev Haskell series is penned with a delightful sense of humor and even some romance. Entertainment is the name of the game as back slapping, corner cutting, babe magnet Dev Haskell interacts with such quirky characters as ice cream mogul Mr. Swirlee, The D'Angelo brothers, local crime lord Tubby Gustafson, 'Fat Freddie' Zimmerman, former NFL tight end Luscious Dixon, exotic dancer Swindle Lawless, and gorgeous Heidi Bauer. The Dev Haskell novels can be read in any order. Originally from St. Paul, Minnesota, Faricy still spends part of his time in the saintly city as well as in Dublin, Ireland.

I wish I could write that by the time I reached the end of the story my sides ached from laughter. Unfortunately, I can't. The problem for the author is that not everyone shares his beliefs that booze, idiocy and harlotry should be constituent parts of an amusing story line, which is indeed a shame, since the tale motors along at a steady pace.
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.

Review 6******

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!

This was the first Book I have read from this author and found it an easy read, love Dev Haskell the PI, bit of a ladies man, bit of a lost cause but what a great character. I usually read dark gritty thrillers so this made a welcome change, the plot was funny maybe a bit silly at times yet still kept you reading till the end, I have already downloaded another Dev mystery ready for a welcome break of the usual dark stuff.

Really good light fun as with the others in this series, but not too sure about the way the characters are developing. Dev is becoming so incompetent that you feel sorry for him. He never seems to realise whats happening until hit with it, usually resulting in him getting arrested. What seems blindingly obvious to the reader leaves Dev clueless. And how exactly does he make any money when he never does bread and butter investigations?

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.

I've read several of Mike Faricy's books, and enjoyed them all. When he sent me a copy of Tutti Frutti for review, I was happy to do so.

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!
