Editorial Reviews

Review

“The incomparable Eddie Perlmutter returns for another wild and wicked thrill ride across Boca Raton and beyond. I love this guy—and this series.”  —Douglas Preston, author of Impact, on Boca Mournings

“This novel is long on clever dialogue and character development. Mystery readers of all stripes will like what they find here.”  —Booklist on Boca Mournings

Boca Mournings is a riotous, ribald look into the wacky world of South Florida. Not since Hiaasen has anyone captured the pothole-marred, driving-impaired, and geriatric-dominated zaniness as well as the new master of the comic crime novel Steve Forman.”  —Jon Land, bestselling author of The Seven Sins

“Mystery fans who like their operatives macho with an offbeat sense of humor will certainly enjoy this book and look forward to the next in the series.”  —Library Journal on Boca Knights

About the Author

STEVEN M. FORMAN grew up in the Boston area. Boca Daze is his third comic mystery featuring Eddie Perlmutter. Forman and his wife live in Massachusetts when it’s warm, and Boca Raton, Florida, when it’s cold.

He is obviously very fond of his adopted State.

It is easy to tell when an author is not only a great story teller, but is also having fun writing.

This was a pleasure to read and my favorite of the Boca Knight series. I had to set it aside repeatedly, just to make it last a little longer. Hopefully Mr Forman will get to work on another Boca book asap.

Steven Forman keeps getting better and better with each book. I have read them all and can't wait for the next one. Boca Daze just expands his literary growth. His characters seem to come to life.

Eddie Perlmutter is simply a very likable character whether helping an aging crook, fighting bad guys, risking his life to save someone or playing the subtle role of a matchmaker.

Format: Hardcover
Eddie Perlmutter, a 61-year-old p.i. in Boca Raton, FL, is still a crusader who cannot, it seems, help himself: He has to save whatever otherwise lost causes present themselves, from homeless people living on the streets, beaches or wherever else, to the endangered sea turtles with nests on the shores. A former Boston cop who, as he says, was that city's "most decorated and demoted policeman in my prime and best marksman on the force," he retired to Boca three years ago. Widowed for many years, he is now living with his gorgeous [and much younger] Haitian-born girlfriend [whose own claim to fame includes cutting a man's head off with a machete before leaving Haiti], still working with Louie Dewey, computer genius extraordinaire. Eddie having been dubbed the Boca Knight, and attained not a small bit of celebrity, by a young newspaper reporter, following an anti-Nazi rally in Palm Beach, among other things, he runs the Boca Knights Detective Agency, with Louie's invaluable assistance.

Louie is only one of many other quirky characters with equally quirky names, e.g., "Three Bag Bailey," a homeless woman, and Liam Michael "Mad Mick" Murphy, a journalist from Key West. Although brutal and violent in many spots, the book is filled with humor, as were the two earlier entries in this series. He is obviously very fond of his adopted State. Eddie mentions in one instance that "over a thousand endangered species live in South Florida. The Early Bird is not one of them, and in another, when about to drive after sustaining a serious head injury, and asked if he is fit to drive, he responds "I'm in better condition than most drivers in Boca.

This is the third of the Boca Knight series and, in my opinion, the best. I must admit that I have grown very fond of main character Eddie Perlmutter. This book takes very contempoary issues and makes the reader feel apart of the action. Lots of action; lots of humor. Great read!

I read a lot. Everything from Lee Child to John Updike, from James Patterson to James Joyce. It is easy to tell when an author is not only a great story teller, but is also having fun writing. Steve Forman tells a great story and has fun doing it. His books are filled with off the cuff remarks and tidbits that keep you reading, make you smile, and at times catch you off guard.

Eddie Perlmutter is the main character in the series and, as I said in the review of "Boca Mournings", is someone you can believe really exists. This is one of the better books I have read in a while, and my only regret is I read it too fast.

All of the Boca Knight books are fun to read. Steven Forman realates the South Florida retirement community accurately and humorously.
