HASH(0xa070c540) out of 5 stars So Much Fun June 2 2011
By Arthur L. Hellyer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Robert J. Randisi may publish a thousand novels before his career winds down but few of them are (or will be) more fun than his "Rat Pack" mysteries. If you have ever entered the celebrity worlds evoked in Stuart Kaminsky's "Toby Peters" mysteries, or Ron Goulart's "Groucho" mysteries, or even George Baxt's myriad of, somewhat more refined, movie star/Broadway star/writer mysteries, you cannot overlook Mr. Randisi's "Rat Pack" stories. Not only are they a whole lot of fun, but they recreate a marvelous time and place - Las Vegas - in the late 1950's and early, thus far, 1960's.

I love the Rat Pack and I love Las Vegas. I also love this series. The mysteries are well-constructed, the mob is involved, the cops aren't always the brightest, the grammar isn't always perfect, and the Vegas atmosphere is wonderful!

You can read the entire six book series poolside in Vegas this summer. Do it!! And may Mr. Randisi write another dozen of them.

HASH(0xa070c600) out of 5 stars Fly Me To the Fun... Aug. 15 2011
By Quixote010 - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Mysteries surrounding people we are familiar with are fun.

Stuart Kaminsky was the first author I discovered with this premise when I latched onto his "Toby Peters" mysteries involving movie stars of the 1940s. Now Robert Randisi has done the same... only this time using those Rat Pack idols Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop, and Peter Lawford.

Fly Me To the Morgue is the sixth Randisi book using the memories of one Eddie Gianelli, former pit boss at the Sands Hotel. "Mr. G" seems to have been often called on to help Martin, Sinatra, et al, out of a situation and now he is telling these tales to interesting listeners.

Naturally the Pack's adventurers often incorporate their Hollywood friends, and in this particular tale Bing Crosby stars and is involved due to murders that take place as a result of his interest in a racing horse. In case you didn't know, Crosby founded the well-known Del Mar Race Track and loved horse racing.

Ginaelli isn't beyond dropping names so naturally Bob Hope appears. and Marilyn Monroe and Ava Gardner have also been in other books. Randisi often adds other known show people as supporting cast. Frank Sinatra Jr., and Jack Jones are mentioned in this edition, for example.

In each event, Gianelli and his Bronx Mafia enforcer buddy Jerry Epstein connect in the stories and a reoccuring cast of characters appears to keep consistency. Gianelli is a likable character, and he and Jerry are as comfortable as Crosby and Hope.

Randisi is a fun writer and his tales flow smoothly and easily... like butter on hot bread. If you have any interest in mysteries surrounding Hollywood and Las Vegas stars, read Randisi's Rat Pack mysteries. I can't wait for them.

HASH(0xa070c84c) out of 5 stars Randisi does it again! Aug. 1 2011
By Eleanor Sullivan, Author of Singular Village Mysteries - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Prolific writer Robert Randisi has another winner in Fly Me to the Morgue. Once again, he's intrigued us with compelling characters who interact with familiar Rat Pack celebrities and led us on a roller-coaster ride in high-flying Vegas. The villain(s) identities fooled me (again!) but the action kept me reading until the wee hours. I've read all in the series and I can't wait till the next one!

HASH(0xa070cac8) out of 5 stars Seeing a Man About a Horse Aug. 1 2015
By Tamela Mccann - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Love this series and love Eddie G.! In book 6 of the Rat Pack Mysteries, Fly Me to the Morgue, Eddie's newest life-threatening problem comes when he accompanies Bing Crosby to look at a possible race horse the celeb may want to buy. Having impressed Bing with his horse knowledge a year earlier, Big Jerry is asked along for the ride, but naturally it's far from a regular visit to look at a horse. Instead, the trio meet with the body of the guy selling the horse, and while that's not their fault, one thing leads to another. Once again, members of the Rat Pack and their friends become involved, along with the Mob and other unsavory characters.

This mystery, like the others, isn't particularly deep but it is so engaging, and so page-turning, that I thoroughly enjoyed myself and raced right through it. All our favorites are back, including Eddie, Jerry, Danny, as well as Frank, Dino, and various other celebrities. Randisi continues to weave Eddie seamlessly into the Vegas of the 60s, and I continue to love these books. This one is just as good as the others, and the addition of Bing to the storyline is just icing on the cake. Why aren't you reading these books? They're too much fun!

I like this series as it takes us back to the time when Vegas was new and wild, were Frank Sinatra and his buddies were the biggest things to hit the strip and this author makes all of the Sinatra "pals" get involved in problems that are solved by"Pit boss" in one of Vegas's old spots.
