“Faricy is the next Carl Hiaasen.” Crime Scene
WORLD’S LAZIEST P.I. MEETS WORLD’S DUMBEST CRIMINAL … LAUGHS AND THRILLS AHEAD!
The city’s laziest Private Investigator, Dev Haskell, agrees to help out his friend Isabella and babysit her two young daughters. But he’s on the job for little more than an hour before he’s assaulted and the girls are kidnapped by Carlos O’Kelly, along with Dev’s Sig Sauer pistol and his car.
Apparently the world’s dumbest criminal, Carlos next knocks over a mob card game, using, of course, Dev’s gun and car. Which puts Dev in something of an awkward position with the local crime lord, Tubby Gustafson. Tubby gives him forty-eight hours to get the money back. And Isabella’s kind of missing her kids, no pressure or anything.
So here we have another of Mike Faricy’s wickedly entertaining mysteries, full of twists and turns with yet another set of wonderfully bizarre, madcap characters. For fans of humorous mysteries, PI stories of all stripes, and out-and-out zany writers, like Carl Hiassen, and Tim Dorsey, witty ones like Lawrence Block and Tony Dunbar, outrageous ones like Donald Westlake.
“Faricy is America’s hottest new mystery writer … and Dev Haskell is one of the looniest and most enjoyable characters inhabiting the world of fictional PIs out there today.” Robert Carraher, The Dirty Lowdown
“I don’t know what Faricy’s been drinking, but pass me a glass, this was extremely entertaining.” The Irish Gazette
