Nevertheless, the entire Digger series is cleverly written and very funny. Pure Block. Although I don't believe it's quite as good as his outstanding Tanner series, The Spy Who Couldn't Sleep, etc.
Digger is an insurance fraud investigator who got his job directly from the owner of the insurance company's owner. His live-in girlfriend is a part time casino dealer and part time high level call girl who tries to unravel the clues of the mystery to be solved. I guess you could call her the Deus ex-machina of the series and, as such, is badly needed.
Digger is a divorced semi-alchy wit with two children he never sees, What's her name and The Boy, and an ex-wife whom he never sees and will have him arrested if she ever sees him in New Jersey. Just cause. Actually, just 'cause. and more accurately, just like in his Trace series which follows it.
If you like dry humor and banty dialogue, this is a series not to be missed. Read it and then move on to his Trace series. You can finish each book at a comfortable two day pace or finish each one in a day if you wich.
For those unfamiliar with the series, Digger is an investigator who works for a life insurance company. He drinks vodka 24/7 and sleeps with every woman he can get his hands on. He's not terribly bright and his girl friend (a part time hooker) solves all of his cases.
In this second book, the series really took off and it was undoubtedly the best of the Digger (or Trace) books. Murphy was at his best providing juvenile quips and a number of times I found myself laughing out loud. The humor is tied to a very interesting mystery and the combination makes this a surprisingly entertaining read.
This book is long out of print but can be purchased for almost nothing from the Amazon sellers. Give it a try and you won't be sorry.
