I loved all the classic rock references and the info about how a radio station is run and how a dj's work is done. The mystery was enjoyable enough but it was the music info that I really loved. I will definitely read the next in the series. I'm assuming that's where he's headed given the ending of the book.

Bill Fitzhugh is one of those authors whose books always go to the top of my to-be-read pile. However, this one is disappointing in every way. While the characters are likeable enough, the plot is almost nonexistant. It meanders. In fact, the book doesn't really end. It just slows until the paper runs out. It is as if Mr. Fitzhugh had to write something, anything, to fulfill a contract. Perhaps it was just an excuse for him to let us all know that he is well versed in the radio business and that he can easily remember obscure music trivia.
This book is so unlike his others, I am going to assume it's a one-off mistake and his next book will be back up to speed.

Great stuff as ever from Bill Fitzhugh. As well as the usual endearing characters, a fun plot that breezes along, and plenty of smiles, there's also tons of interesting stuff about classic rock and radio stations which had me reaching for my CD wish list. Bill Fitzhugh has a real knack for making even his not so nice characters likeable, and sometimes even loveable. Left me with a good feeling for days after I finished it. Can't wait for the follow up.

I'm an avid reader and I got addicted to this author back when I first read Pest Control. However, I never even finished this book I was so bored with it. I really didn't care how it ended. It just didn't have the snappy wit I've seen in other books and the story just wasn't interesting. Needs to go back to the drawing board.

WITH RADIO ACTIVITY,I HAVE NOW READ ALL OF MR.FITZHUGH'S NOVELS.THIS ONE IS THE MOST DISAPPOINTING.I'M USED TO A GREAT READ AND A THOUSAND LAUGHS.NARY A ONE IN THIS BOOK.IT WAS WORK GETTING THROUGH IT.POSSIBLY HE HAS GONE THE ROAD OF OTHER GOOD FICTION WRITERS AND HAD SOMEONE GHOST-WRITE IT FOR HIM BECAUSE THE WELL OF IDEAS HAS DRIED UP.
