Book Description

1998
The morning after his best friend is crushed to death, longshoreman Romeo Charles Geoffrion, also known as Boomboom, discovers the dead body of a prostitute. The Vancouver police target Boomboom, who knew the prostitute, as the prime suspect in the case. Boomboom's own reliability gradually diminishes as the body count around him continues to rise. Eager to clear his own name, Boomboom wanders through the Vancouver waterfront trying desperately to solve the string of murders as he evades the police and pursues his next drink.

Review

"Only a masterful storyteller can take you where Ferone takes you ..." -- Freddy Bosco, The Bloomsbury Review - Jan/Feb 2001

"[Boomboom is] an intriguingly eccentric paperback original ... Ferone's portraits of his scruffy locales and wistful hero are engrossing." -- Adam Woog for the Seattle Times - July 1999 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Boomboom June 2 2001
Format:Paperback
Boomboom, by Joseph Ferone, combines suspense and mystery with the author's unique blend of laugh-out-loud humor, puns and hysterical malapropisms. I can't wait to read it again. I hope I never meet Iris in a bar or anywhere, but I hope I do read plenty more by Mr. Ferone! His characters are straight out of the shadows and yet as clear and knowable as can be. For a gritty, funny, puzzle of a book read Boomboom. You won't guess what happens, but you'll think about it long after you finish.
