About the Author

I have been published twice in Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine and am an active member of Mystery Writers of America.  I have just finished my first novel, MONKEY SOUP BOOGIE.  My wife and I live in Massachusetts where we have only two seasons, dead of winter and bad sledding.  And that's only a slight exaggeration.

There were so many misspellings and typos (i.e. missing quotation marks) in this book, that it became painful to read.

Nice to have a humorous mystery to read where the characters are older. Wish more people would write with the older generation in mind!

I enjoyed this mystery very much. The characters were fully developed and endearing. I loved how well they took care of Oscar. I hope Robert Gannon continues to write many more Barney, Willey and Oscar mysteries.

There were some humorous moments in the book and all in all it isn't bad. It does suffer from several problems. The formatting for some reason has some glitches in it. There are numerous grammar problems though some could be attributed to trying to write in a vernacular. There is the bones of a very good book here and the potential for a series featuring these two characters.

The basic plot is that two senior citizens are trying to save their trailer park from being torn down. They then set off on a series of misadventures to save it from the unscrupulous developer. Along the way they enlist the aid of several other seniors and an FBI agent. Yes a lot of the situations are implausible but you can overlook that if the story is good enough. This one could have been but fell just short.

Problem one. several instances of where the author shifted the voice of the story. 99% is told by Barney. However for about 6 paragraphs he sifts it to Willie. Then later in the book he shifts it for about 10 paragraphs to another character.
Problem two. A lot of the story hinges around barney getting pictures for the FBI. He uses film. Have you even tried to buy film lately? Story was set as current.
Problem three, FBI agent hires these two old codgers for undercover and pays them off the books.
Problem four, Barney kills another senior in a trash compactor then calmly leaves the scene and seems to have no problem with it.
Problem five, Barney, Willie and FBI agents grandmother blow up four criminals then calmly leave the scene.
Problem six, it is not really a mystery as you pretty much know all along who is responsible for everything except some Kook that calms himself the night stalker.
Problem seven.

This book had a lot of potential, but it has too many implausibilities for me to recommend it. Can't believe an FBI agent would "hire" two inept old geezers to do surveillance operations, and do it off-the-books, just because things are short-staffed. Too many "oh please??" items to ignore about this one.

I had a fun time reading this book. Even though the reader knew who were the bad guys, the adventures of Barney, Willie and Oscar were humorous and full of action.

I loved the geezer aspect of this mystery. It was great how they wound the story around and made me root for the old guys.
