Product Description

Product Description


*** Farewell My Lovely meets Californication ***

Meet Jack Storm PhD, disgraced ex-college professor and unlicensed PI. Since getting turfed out of Berkeley for violent misconduct, he’s turned his brains and his 250-pound frame to solving crimes. Working out of Los Angeles (and the trunk of his 20 year-old Mercedes Benz), Jack has finally found his true place in life: the gutter.

When Jerry Picco goes missing, Jack is called in to help. Picco is the world’s greatest ‘erotic actor’, and his disappearance has come at a difficult time for the diminutive porn star. He’s left a heap of debt, a career in nosedive, and a screen partner with plenty reasons to want him gone.

Jack has his own reasons for trying to find him. Apart from anything else, he’s one of Jerry’s biggest fans. The only clues he’s got: a Polaroid of seven little men in the woods, and some story about a princess.

For fans of Carl Hiaasen and Janet Evanovich, What Ever Happened to Jerry Picco? is a humorous literary spoof, an unusual, quirky detective novel... a romp of a noir from prize-winning author John Barlow.

HASH(0xa81cbe94) out of 5 stars Recommended hardboiled noir March 31 2011

This was much better than expected. A real steal at 99 cents and a well-written fast read. There are some great scenes here and Florez maintains the momentum from start to finish, although he could have cut a little here and there. I look forward to seeing this detective team in a sequel.

Jack Storm is an engaging character, in an engaging world. If you've read the blurb about the book, you know it's a bit dark and saucy-- your mileage may vary.
$3 was a good price for this story, probably an outstanding price now that I reflect on the content. I liked it, you probably will come out the other side with some new thoughts about humanity.

Recommend for the $7 and below crowd.

One of the worst books I've ever read. Badly written, badly edited (if, indeed, it was edited at all). This author was a book club selection. Every one of us who read this title hated it, but, in all fairness, those who read another selection by this author liked their choice.

This, IMHO, was a slow read. I don't recommend it. Maybe because I had it on my Kindle and just read it in bits and pieces when I had time to kill, like sitting in my car waiting on someone.
