Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The versatile inventor of the La-La Land and Jack Hatch series, Campbell here features his other hero, Jim Flannery of the Edgar-winning The Junkyard Dog. Living according to the Chicago Democratic principle, "a favor for a favor," involves Jim in occasional charitable illegalities. After his political mentor, Chips Delvin, is committed to Larkspur Rest Home by a distant cousin, Jim is refused admittance and must sneak in. Finding Chips hallucinating and neglected, Jim asks another patient to report anything that could empower authorities to close down the "rest" home. But the patient is later found drowned in Larkspur's duck pond, a prelude to fearsome, as well as vastly amusing, events. In the end, having relied on another hallowed local custom, the "get-back," Jim is satisfied that he has outwitted nasty conspirators .

Format: Paperback
I grabbed this book from a friend, not really expecting to like it, but looking for something to read on a plane trip. And I have to admit it was an enjoyable and quaint middle class story. An old style mystery with a good heart. The writing is done in the vernacular of its New Orleans cast and it makes for a easy read.
An it's exactly that an easy read, a big mac, it's not a book that you're going to think back on one day. So, if you're looking for a good book for the plane or the beach, knock yourself out. If you want something alittle meatier, move on.

The Jimmy Flannery books are fun to read and uplifting for the soul, often leaving me laughing out loud. This one is almost as good as the first two, an excellent piece of fiction. I also recommend the audiobooks of this series, read with an authentic rendering of Jimmy Flannery's old-time Chicago patois.
