Arnie has more critical issues to deal with. His ex-lover Debbie's groom-to-be is murdered at the church. Guess who needs the services of a part-time private investigator? Yep, Debbie, the ex. The reader gets the impression that dentistry is the part-time profession. Arnie is soon swamped with PI tasks: undercover sleuthing for two warring crime families, tracking down a serial killer of orthodontists, and busting Debbie's butt out of jail. All the while dealing daily with Tanya, a sneaky, aggressive, quick-tongued office receptionist who quite possibly could be bipolar.
Shrott has created his leading character with a dry wit and a modest appreciation of his own self worth. It's one of those books where the reader is smiling all the time with outbursts of laughter. Don't you just want to lean over that person's shoulder to see what's so funny?
Shrott also teaches courses in how to write humor. Tough class. I should know. I ended up as a guinea pig in his course this summer. Hey, Steve, it's been fun dissecting your book the way you dissected my assignments. I highlighted your jokes as I read. My unofficial joke count in DEAD MEN DON'T GET MARRIED: an average of four chuckles per page. Thanks for the belly laugh on Page 26, Paragraph 2. I did not see that one coming.
Only downside? When I try to loan this book to others to enjoy, they all squirm and say "Eew!" when they see all the pink and blue highlighting on each page. Rats! So much for philanthropy.
