Format: Paperback
This was the grittiest of the three "Rex" books and just as enjoyable as the previous two. Possibly moreso as the humor seemed less forced at times. This was a hard-edged story laced with humor, whereas the first two books (especially "Casual Rex") seemed the other way around.

A great series - can't wait for the next installment!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book picks up where "Casual Rex" and "Anonymous Rex" left off; Vincent Rubio - the dinosaur detective - is now off the herbs and looking for action. He does NOT expect to end up working for the enemy . . .

Fans of Eric Garcia and the Dinosaur Mafia already know what to expect. Those who don't - in this world, dinosaurs are NOT extinct, but have adapted to live among us - unseen due to the use of disguises, girdles and lots of glue. What is amazing is that while you are reading the book, you just go with it because Garcia has created this world SO convincingly. Not to be missed by anyone who enjoys darkly funny noir.

'Anonymous Rex' was our favourite. I am just finishing up 'Hot and Sweaty Rex' and Mr is working his way thru 'Casual Rex'
We hope that Garcia comes out with more Vincent Rubio for us to enjoy!

By A. Prapasapong on December 3, 2006
Format: Paperback
Dark and mystery, twisted and humor. A velociraptor PI who winded up working for a family for Raptor mafia whose HQ in LA. And got dragged along with the mafia's head leader plot against another family of Hadrosaur. Twists in the plot, back-stabbing, betrayal, torture, and bloods. But it is still a good book, for humans or dinos in disguised ;)

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By G. Henson VINE VOICE on November 28, 2007
Format: Paperback
I liked the book a lot, but some things never left my mind. Every time guises and clamps came up, I couldn't stop thinking about how a dinosaur could slip into a human suit without having humongous bulges in the head and tail regions. I know a suspension of disbelief is necessary, but I couldn't always get there. I think for me it would have taken more humor. There was such a gritty edge to the book, it made it tougher for me to picture the characters as dinos in disguise. Still, the story line was good and kept you trying to figure out what was coming next.
