5.0 out of 5 stars Cold! Steel! Justice!, June 18, 2011
By 
This review is from: Cold! Steel! Justice!!! (Kindle Edition)
When I think of comic crime novels, I immediately think of Donald Westlake's Dortmunder series, which have entertained me for years. If you're the same, don't expect "Cold! Steel! Justice!" to meet that expectation. O'Hara describes it as "like all the great straight-to-video cop movies you remember from the 1980s ..."

Great literature it isn't, any more than the movies it parodies are examples of great filmmaking. But it is great at what O'Hara intended it to be. I laughed and shook my head at Christian Beretta's antics, just like with those 1980s cop movies. O'Hara's twisted descriptions were spot-on, and laugh inducing as well, such as when he described someone as, "feeling as low as a dachshund spelunker suffering from depression" or "feeling like the biggest jerk this side of Lindsay Lohan's dad." If you're in the mood for a read that is neither politically correct nor serious, and feel the need to cut loose with a few guffaws, "Cold! Steel! Justice!" is the book you're looking for.
