I bought several this time, haven't read the rest. Hopefully they'll be more interesting then this one was.
Unfortunately, it seems as if the author is going along with other authors who are only now writing for the money and could care less about their readers. This book ends right in the middle with nothing whatever resolved. It is clearly a ploy to force readers to buy the next book in the series, whenever that comes out.
Sorry, but I don't like to be manipulated. So this is my last book in this series, and my last book by this author. If enough of us do this, perhaps these authors will stop treating us like fools.
This novel has the three things that are important to every Tubby Dubonnet novel: A crazy caper, Tubby meeting a new lady friend, and a few good New Orleans restaurant recommendations. However, this novel also goes into Tubby's back story in the early chapters. We learn how the country boy from Bunkie who just wanted to fly crop dusters fell in love with the Big Easy.We learn how he met his best friend (and often partner in crime) Raisin Partlow, and we get a small glimpse of Tubby's time in the Army.
The most important part of the back story, and the novel in general, is the murder of an anti-war protestor in the 70's that has haunted Tubby for 40 years. Our favorite lawyer is determined to bring the killer(s) of his friend to justice. As always, it was a fun book that ended too soon. Hopefully, we'll see another installment before too long.
In the meantime, thanks to Tony and Tubby, I'm going to have make my way to NOLA soon to have lunch at Tivoli and Lee.
This is another Tubby Dubonnet mystery that all Dubonnet fans will want to add to their library. However you may actually find three mysteries within the covers of this book by Tony Dunbar: 1) Why is Tubby in Naples when he could be in his office on St. Charles? 2) Will he get closure on a monkey on his back? 3) Will he bring the Night Watchman to justice? 4) Is Peggy O’Flarity going to be Tubby’s new long term main squeeze?
The author gives Tubby and array of normal and shady characters. They bring explosions, ample gun play, and character to character physical contact to a fast moving storyline Tubby triesto remove the monkey from his back. As always Cherrylynn serves as Tubby’s right hand and in this mode also has to deal with the same set of characters. Regardless of what else is going on, Tubby never varies from his motto, “Don’t Drink the Water.”
I needed to get the answers to these mysteries so I made a pitcher Rum and Citrus Juices (come on it was the best I could do for a Hurricane Punch), grabbed my copy of the book, and retired to my quite place to read. If you want to know the solutions of these mysteries, you need to get your copy of this Four Star book, retire to your quite place and enjoy another Tubby Dubonnet Mystery.
It's probably a good thing that I've quit while I'm ahead. I truly hate reading series of books that start out really good but then end up (after 7, 8, 9, whatever) going downhill. Some authors (like Mr. Dunbar) just don't know when it's time to have their main character ride off into the sunset, never to return (or kill them off, heh).

I found the most exciting part of the book was getting to 85% read on my kindle and finding the words “The End” before the rest of it launched into the hook for the next in the series.
Needless to say I didn’t read that.
I feel I’ve been quite negative here, which I don’t like to be, so I’m going to say that I’d like to read a book from much later in the series to see if the character has developed more into one which I’m interested in what happens to.
Fascinating right through to the end.
