About the Author

Rick Dewhurst tried his hand at a variety of jobs, including home improvements salesman, bartender, fish-boat deckhand, and taxi driver, before earning his B.A. in English literature from the University of Victoria, with training in journalism. He then worked as a newspaper sports editor before answering the call to start City Gate Church, where he has served as pastor since 1995. Rick enjoys a good game of Eight-ball. His first novel, Bye Bye Bertie, introduced readers to the lovable and offbeat P.I. Joe LaFlam. Rick lives in Duncan, British Columbia, with his wife Jane. They have three adult children. rickdewhurst.com

If you're looking for a great summer read - look no further. Rick Dewhurst pens another hilarious Joe LaFlam mystery in the spirit of "Bye Bye Bertie." I've been anxiously awaiting five years for this book to be released and was surprised to see it finally appear on Amazon. I absolutely loved the first book and "My Fear Lady" is just as great.

It a hard book to describe. I'd say it's a cross between Dashiell Hammett, P.G. Wodehouse and Lancelot Link (without the chimps). It's extremely funny, tongue-in-cheek, sarcastic, intelligent, humor. Rick definitely knows the idiosyncrasies of the church and is not afraid to share them with his readers. Even though our story is a mystery, the main component is a look into the heart and mind of a "Christian" detective who is a bit... how shall I say it... unstable. Joe's mental rants are laugh-out-loud funny. Rick is either a genius or he's crazy (but then most geniuses are a bit on the loony side), but I'll vote for genius just in case Rick has ties to the mob.

The story is classic private eye with a great array of off-the-wall characters and a plot with plenty of surprises. I find it helps if you read the book using your best impersonation of Jack Webb narrating Dragnet.

Our story begins not too far in the future from where we left off the last time. (This book is a stand-alone but it doesn't hurt to read the first book first.) Joe LaFlam is hired to find a client's fiancé who has gotten caught up in an underground organization to take over the world. Two other enjoyable subplots tie together to make a very entertaining page-turner.

There are two rules when reading this book:
1. Don't take it too seriously.
2. Take it seriously.

Although it's a very funny book it also has its messages.
