In a flashback sequence, Johnny's father tells Johnny he could grow up to the be the guy who drives and protects the President's body double; "I started training every day. Still a long way from being able to drive a car, I started riding my bike around the neighborhood as practice. I attached a wagon to the back of my bike and instead of driving my friends around in it, I found kids who looked like my friends so that it was more authentic."
Johnny is a good-hearted guy who’s clueless about his abilities and just can’t seem to catch a break. While he says he’s “the best” at driving, the story reveals that everything that Johnny drives he subsequently crashes -- a car, horse-drawn carriage, tank, and a limousine are all destroyed in his attempt to wreck vengeance on Michael – the crime boss whose organization Johnny wants to destroy.
Thankfully, Johnny’s incompetence is more than compensated for by his huge and aptly named pal, Truck – who comes across like a fair-skinned Hulk.
The writing makes the story come across like a mash-up of various genres: it’s got Bogart’s atmosphere, the knockabout antics of the Stooges, and plenty of dry, wisecracking dialogue akin to the Marx Brothers.
A pleasant diversion that’s tailor-made for beach reading.
I don't know how he keeps coming up with such hilarious material, but Nick Tory has done it again. All 3 of these books are exactly the kind of book I like: short, easy to read, and laugh out loud funny. The ending is appropriately ridiculous. Also, nice to see the return of Truck.
Well worth the super cheap price. Highly recommended.
The ridiculousness in this book includes Johnny driving (and mostly crashing) a horse drawn carriage, a motorcycle, a limo, and various other things. He’s like the energizer bunny. He just keeps on going and you can’t help but root for the dimwit and those that help him along the way.
Definitely check this one out if you need a break from your life for a bit.
My favorite series. MORE! MORE!
