Book Description

Bombshell is the FOURTH novel in the humorous and suspenseful Dev Haskell mystery series.

THE JOB: PROTECT A RAGTAG CREW OF GORGEOUS ROLLER DERBY GIRLS FROM A STALKER. WHAT COULD GO WRONG?

"Dev is at it again. Put the coffee on, and plan to stay up late, this is a real page turner." -The Irish Gazette

Dysfunctional, bumbling, crazy babe-magnet Dev Haskell, Private Investigator, has just landed the job of a lifetime. He'll be the envy of every guy with a heartbeat: Dev is hired to provide security for a team of beautiful English roller derby stars (with stage names like Harlotte Davidson and Helen Killer). Though he'd rather be standing guard in the shower room, he finds himself in a world of trouble when he's mistaken for the stalker-turned-killer he's been tracking.

With an attorney who drinks too much and a team of females ready to kill him, Dev must prove his innocence, all the while finding the real killer and protecting himself against the wiles of yet another irresistible and dangerous woman.


Editorial Reviews

Review

Where to begin, Dev is at it again. Put the coffee on, and plan to stay up late, this is a real page turner. - The Irish Gazette
What a delight. Hooked from the first page. - Crime Stories
Not sure who is crazier, author Mike Faricy or his character, Dev Haskell. Suffice to say, Dev provides, a lot of laughs, non-stop action and a good deal of enjoyment. - Locked Up
Another hit for Mike Faricy. Roller Derby?! Really? What fun. Reading Faricy's Dev Haskell series is always a romp - and always brings me a smile if not a belly laugh. NatureRabbi
This is one, of several, Dev Haskell novels. Dev is a private investigator that has a way with the ladies and getting into crazy situations. He is a guy you will either love, or love to hate. -
The Mystical world of Book Reviews
The book is fast, furious in places, replete with up-scale drinking, dining, several bedroom scrums and ultimately, a logical, satisfying solution. The novel, supplied to this reviewer free of charge, probably won't win any literary prizes, but it's fun and well worth its cover price. - Carl Brookins

From the Author

First let me thank two real derby stars, Pinkey Gomez of the Vice City Rollers and Queen Sixela of the Minnesota Roller Girls for making the time. They were a lot of help and fun and they provided me with a look into a world I knew very little about. Only Dev would think watching a bunch of beautiful women couldn't possibly present any problems. Of course like all things Dev's involved in, it takes a beautiful woman to finally pull his feet from the fire. Along the way there are more than a few mis-adventures. Without giving anything away, and although it's drawn a lot of laughs and rolls of the eyes, the ending is based on a real life occurrence. Of course only in St. Paul, or in this instance, only with Dev Haskell.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where does he get his zany ideas? August 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another hit for Mike Faricy. Roller Derby?! Really? What fun. Reading Faricy's Dev Haskell series is always a romp - and always brings me a smile if not a belly laugh. Dev is such a nebish (if he were Jewish) -- bumbling along in life, getting into and somehow out of, the weirdest experiences. Just picture our tattered hero, Dev, surrounded by Roller Derby babes, with names like Harlotte Davidson or Helen Killer. As he investigates a stalker, turned killer,our Dev gets hauled in to the police station so many times it's a wonder he doesn't have his own desk. How he manages to solve crimes is as amazing to him as it is for the reader. Faricy's characters are great. No superheroes for him. All sort of gently broken - few you would proudly take home to mother. I enjoy reading Faricy when I am looking for guaranteed entertainment and a fun mystery. I look forward to his next book. Always a good time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A FANTASTIC BOOK AND A MUST READ! September 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Review 7*******

I was given a copy of this book by the author in return for an honest review.

Ever since I was introduced to Dev Haskell, P.I. in Mike Faricy's book Russian Roulette, I have loved these stories!

Dev Haskell is a P.I. with a roving eye for the ladies. He is suave and charming, but tends to find himself in some unusual situations. And in this book, there is no exception!

I love these books because, not only are they exceedingly well written, they are filled with action and adventure. Reading this novel, I could not help but tut and shake my head at Dev's actions! He may be a man's man with an appreciation of the female person but, to me, he's a bit of a pervert! That being said, he does have a few redeeming qualities though. In this book there is less bed hopping and more detective work. When he turns his attention to his work, he is very thorough and gets results. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel, and was completely engrossed in the story. I especially loved all the names the English roller derby ladies went by. They made me smile. Here's a small sample: Helen Killer, Maiden Bed, Brandi Manhattan and Cheatin Hart, not to mention Spankie!

Mike Faricy has written another fantastic detective novel full of danger and suspense that captured my attention, and held it until the final page! Bombshell is an apt title for this book! If you are looking for a fast paced detective story, then look no further! I highly recommend this book, and series! I'm looking forward to reading more of Dev's adventures in the future. - Lynn Worton (WaAR)

5.0 out of 5 stars Dev does it again! September 3, 2012
Format:Paperback
Dev is one of the country's biggest screw-ups with a good heart and an unmatched talent for getting himself out of the messes he seems to end up in on a regular basis. Mike Faricy makes it a real treat following Dev in and out of the messes. Bombshell was a great read that I couldn't put down this weekend. The characters are whackier than ever and the fast paced, bizarre plot takes the kind of twists and turns that have come to define Faricy's work.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fast, Funny and Offbeat Crime Novel April 20, 2013
Format:Paperback
Dev Haskell is the only character in crime fiction who can casually walk into a room, trip over a throw rug and avoid being crushed by a falling ceiling fixture. Then, when he rises and dusts himself off, he discovers that somebody tried to skewer him with a carving knife but missed because he tripped. None of that happens in Bombshell

A lot of other things do. Haskell is a not-so-private investigator in Saint Paul, Minnesota, who can't seem to stay out of woman trouble while he pursues cases that most PIs probably wouldn't touch even if they were starving.

That's one of Haskell's characteristics. Another is that while his relationship with local law enforcement is pretty good--most of the time--he seems to trip over throw rugs and even with a bent nose, come up smelling like a rose.

Well, as to plot. Dev is hired to babysit a visiting team of roller derby women. There are basically two attractive parts to roller derby competitions. Female violence on the track and the violence committed by attractive under-dressed women. This isn't a judgment, here. Naturally, very early on in Dev's tenure, deadly violence occurs off the track and he's a prime suspect.

The book is fast, furious in places, replete with up-scale drinking, dining, several bedroom scrums and ultimately, a logical, satisfying solution. The novel, supplied to this reviewer free of charge, probably won't win any literary prizes, but it's fun and well worth its cover price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great suspense thriller by this author June 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I was gifted on e-copy in exchange for my honest review.

This is one, of several, Dev Haskell novels. Dev is a private investigator that has a way with the ladies and getting into crazy situations. He is a guy you will either love, or love to hate. In this novel, he is hired to watch over a Roller Derby team, but mainly the star, Harlotte Davidson. She has received several strange, threatening, gifts. While trying to put a finger on who could be doing this, Dev finds himself becoming the suspect. This situation may be even too hard for Dev to talk himself out of. Will Dev be able to free himself and find the real suspect, or go down for the crime that he was hired to take care of? Another great suspense thriller by this author.

More About the Author

The Dirty Lowdown called Mike Faricy America's hottest new mystery writer. Robert Carraher and the Irish Gazette referred to him as Minnesota's Master of the Bizarre. He has been nominated for a Minnesota book award. All his books are stand alone, they can be read in whatever order you wish. They're filled with the sort of oddballs we're all curious about, but wisely prefer to keep at a distance. His characters serve not so much as an example as they do a warning to us all. None of them will be saving the world from terrorism, international banking conspiracies or coups to take over the government. Rather, his characters inhabit a world just below the surface of polite society. The circumstances they find themselves in are usually due to their own bad decisions, but then bad decisions make for interesting stories.
Mikes debut novel was Slow, Slow, Quick, Quick. He has also written, Baby Grand, Chow for Now, End of the Line, Finders Keepers and Merlot. His Dev Haskell series, in order are; Russian Roulette, Mr. Swirlee, Bite Me, Bombshell, Tutti Frutti and Last Shot. The Dev Haskell novels are all stand alone and can be read in any order.
He is originally from St. Paul, Minnesota, where he spends part of his time as well as in Dublin, Ireland. You can follow Mike on Twitter @mikefaricybooks or connect with him on his Facebook page at facebook.com/MikeFaricyBooks or email him at mikefaricyauthor@gmail.com
