"Mr. Mayhem" socks you in the gut like a shot and a beer. Jeff Widmer takes you on a wild ride in the murderous tour bus in a uniquely dark and twisted story that manages to touch on euthanasia, medical ethics, addiction, greed, sleaze, family ties that bind, sex, scintillation, and more. And then there's Brinker. . . . - Louise Machinist, author of My House Our House "Eccentricity at its finest in a detective story, and proof that a flawed protagonist can still earn sympathy." - Kirkus Reviews Reading Jeff Widmer's Brinker novels is like gliding on Hans Brinker's silver skates-the writing just flows. It's smooth, sharp and with a cutting edge throughout. - Screenwriter Michael Downend

This is the second 'Brinker' novel (the first being 'Mr. Mayhem'), and there's a lot to like about it. Jeff Widmer's dialogue is sharp and witty, with more than a touch of the Raymond Chandler about it. At times, it's hilarious and I found myself in several fits of giggles. However, the plot is occasionally a little confusing and while I loved the characters (particularly Buddha) and the banter between him and Brinker, the storyline and the many business dealings left me a tad lost.
Nevertheless, Mr Magic is an entertaining read and I'll be keeping a close on Mr Widmer's future output.
While the story has lots of action, with one crazy thing happening after another, there is not a lot of chance for character development. To me, Buddha, Brinker’s muscle, was the most interesting. While breaking kneecaps was one aspect to him, he also seemed to be an enlightened human being.
If you enjoy a fast paced thriller, mixed with a detective noir story, and a dash of a male Stephanie Plum, this would be perfect for you.
