Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Again employing his Cleveland, Ohio, setting (as in Full Cleveland ) Roberts presents private eye Milan Jacovich in his third appearance. Here Jacovich becomes embroiled in the drug trade while trying to help childhood friend Matt Baznik, whose son Paul has undergone a worrisome personality change. After talking with the sulky, uncooperative teenager--who seems to have a considerable amount of cash--Jacovich suspects him of dealing drugs. Some schoolyard snooping and conversations with his own son, formerly a buddy of Paul's, lead the PI to a group of black kids and a Jamaican drug dealer. Warned off the politically sensitive turf by a narcotics cop, Jacovich turns to Giancarlo D'Allessandro, the drug-hating head of the local mob, for information. After the dealer is murdered and D'Allessandro's leads point to a wealthy citizen with political aspirations, Jacovich is badly beaten. Only by joining forces with the ex-athlete principal of the boys' school is Jacovich able to unravel a devious plot. Roberts displays a sure sense of place in this involving mystery, and his decent, likable detective is firmly aware of the consequences of his actions.

From Kirkus Reviews

Slovenian sleuth Milan Jacovich (Full Cleveland, Pepper Pike), in an attempt to wrest an old pal's son from drugs, again must call on a Cleveland don for help and, at the same time, avoid the ``Jamaican Connection,'' a bloodthirsty island gang that uses school kids as dope-runners. In the midst of saving Paulie, Milan uncovers crack houses owned by rich car-dealer/would-be power-maven Waco Morgan and his mistress, the dumb but luscious Barrie Tremont. Several lethal and near-lethal hits later, Milan concludes that Waco, the Jamaicans, and the don's boys are not the brains behind the drug-racket--and then, in a grisly confrontation in a warehouse storing the Thriller, an old Euclid beach roller-coaster ride, he eliminates (at least temporarily) Cleveland's drug-kingpin. The divorced, middle-aged Milan's best scenes are with his two sons, the most clich‚d with young Mary, his disenchanted lover. And if he seems a shade too written-to-formula, his food is still as mouthwatering as anything Lawrence Sanders has come up with. -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP.

I've read 4 of these Les Roberts books now, including Pepper Pike, and I am now officially "hooked" on the series and the characters. Les has a great ability to keep the pace moving and the books never seem to have slow spots. Well done.

I just finished reading this book ......normally I can finish a book of this length in a day or two .....this took me a week ... I wouldn't have finished it if I had anything else to read and besides .....my mother gave me the book .... I regret not finding something better to read I didn't really want to tell mom I didn't read the book because it was such a lousy read.....so slugged through the thing and hope she doesn't ask... it was not worth my effort or time.........this book is more propaganda (basically "don't do drugs" which I totally agree with) than it was a detective novel .... it goes on and on ......repeats over and over this basic message.....OK..... I got it the first twenty times .....enough already lets get on with the plot ...he should have followed Nancy Reagan's example.... just say NO.... the plot is predictable and hard to accept.......if you like good character development you will be disappointed......a weak effort on the authors part.

DEEP SHAKER is the third Milan Jacovich, Cleveland, Ohio, P.I. I have to say again, "Why aren't more of you reading this series??" At least based on the number of reviews....there has to be more readers in just the Cleveland area. This is a good series. In this one Jacovich steps in to help a friend rescue the friend's son from the evils in drugs. Drugs and gangs and mayhem. Roberts is a good writer and the series deserves more attention. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED series and this book.

Having read all but the most recent of the Jacovich series, I have to be blunt: Author Les Roberts gets Cleveland and he gets Jacovich.
This Slovenian is one hard hombre with a heart of gold who wears all his foibles on his sleeve.
Roberts is one hell of a writer who keeps the pages turning with a well developed and ever changing cast of characters.
Can't wait to get the next in this series into by hands along with a cold brew.
Great Reads!!

This one is my favorite, so far, of the Milan Jacovich Misteries. Milan is hired to find out who took the money . . . Without going into detail, this was an easy and fun read.
