Any way, you can read the description to get a summary of the item, but if you like mystery with a side of snark (and if you have ever practiced yoga or tolerated someone else blathering about it), you'll definitely enjoy this book. "Downward-Facing Death" takes the hardboiled detective novel genre and twists it into a brand-new pose (ugh, sorry for the pun).
Apparently, the following submissions for the book will automatically download if you purchase the first one, so hop on the bandwagon and get your updates as soon as they're published. This is very enjoyable and a quick read, and I'm looking forward to reading more as soon as possible.
"Martinez was right beside him like some kind of government minder. It pissed Bolster off. But Bolster knew that wasn't a healthy emotion, so he observed it, appreciated it for what it was, and let it go."
"The day was brighter than an afterschool program for indigo children."
I did have trouble with the serial format. I ended up taking a long break from this book because i started reading other things while I was waiting for the next installment and lost momentum for this book. But I did come back to it.
The other con for this book for me was that it stretched the limits of my willing suspension of disbelief. I don't want to write spoilers here, but plot points around the murder were not believable enough for me.
However, I'm glad there's another Matt Bolster mystery to look forward to, and I know that so many mystery series get even better as they go along. I expect no less from Neal Pollack.

I actually ended up skipping through a good portion of the book because it bored me a bunch. I did however want to see "who dunnit."
He talked a lot about just wanting to smoke some pot and drink to relax, do such and such in yoga to relax and get energized.
I would say if you like or are interested in yoga, you might find this less boring....then you might also get mad at the end when the OLD yogi says basically that it is all bull.....
I will not be reading more books by this author.
I give the book 4 stars because although I found it amusing, I do not think I will read any more by this author. When Iwas done wtih it, I gave the book to my yoga instructor who thought it was pretty funny and was passing it on to some of her yoga friends as well.

A gruesome death scene took me unaware. It brought home that it is about the death of a person. Well done.
