The story is captivating and well written. The plot has some interesting twists that are well disguised until the truth is revealed. I love some of the descriptive names of characters: Gerry Smoulderwell and Carl Sleeperson. You'll have to read to find out why these names are descriptive.
With the sexual content, drug use and deceit, it is not geared towards the morally sensitive reader. For readers that enjoy this genre, it will certainly be entertaining.
I was able to figure out his case before the big reveal, but that did not deter me from enjoying the reveal scene. I was happily surprised that he spared his client's feeling by keeping the truth from her. Makes for bad business, but so does giving her multiple orgasms.
Jake is likable in the way you always have that outcast friend who is crass, but means well. At least he is honest. He is somewhat of a looser, but that is part of his charm. His disguises alone had me rolling. I was a little put off by his reference of people in the Bible Belt, since that is where I grew up, but then I realized that was part of Jake's charm. Not all of us are idiot in breeders. As a matter of fact they are few are far between. Lol
Overall the book is very entertaining and keeps your interest. It was a quick read and I would recommend it to those who have an open mind and a quirky sense of humor.
First of all, this book is absolutely fabulous from the first page. Taylor’s dialogue between the characters is so realistic (and hilarious) that it makes you feel as if you are there taking part in the conversation. I immediately decided I wanted Jake Hancock to be my best friend so that we could sit around engaging in his banter that is intelligent, semi-offensive and so funny! Several times while I was reading I found myself completely laughing out loud, pausing to reflect on the fact that someone thought to say something so funny. Besides the humor of the novel and Jake’s lively banter with the other characters, this book is truly suspenseful with tons of twists and turns that you don’t see coming. Not suspenseful in a spooky way, “Hollywood Detective” keeps you guessing the entire time, and is an absolute page-turner that you will start and finish in one sitting.
I read over some of the other reviews online for this novel, as well as, for some of the others in the series and here’s what I noticed. People seem to love this book and think it’s hilarious or they hate Jake Hancock and think the book is just morally offensive. Not really sure what it says about me, but I thought it was fabulous. If you are easily offended by language then this probably isn’t the book for you. However, if you are not one easily offended and want to read a laugh-out-loud crime thriller, then grab this novel. Cheers to a great novel and I can’t wait to read more about Jake Hancock!
*I received a copy of this novel for free in exchange for an honest review.
It says he is from Scotland, an island off the British coast. Maybe you should check your geography.
Enjoyable a novel. The plot seemed to me to flow smoothly, until the point where the detective arrives home and his boss claims there is a complicated plot against the firm. Even though this was hinted at in the beginning, it seems so improbable. And his reaction is so cavalier. My boss tells me a terrorist is after us and we have to go to a bunker, I'd be a little on edge.
I get it that hard-bitten detectives curse a lot. It didn't seem real when the young ingenue did it.
Do you think a heterosexual man has ever voluntarily switched his sex just to stay married? But it's a creative idea. Good for you.
Did you research how labs run DNA comparisons? When looking at DNA, I think they can just tell how closely the two are related as parent & child. I don't think they can tell if the two samples are father/daughter or mother /daughter. If the child sample had enough of whatever characteristics they are counting of the parent sample, it would show a match.
