Rick and his partner Lois Madigan, his old CIA handler, now run a private detective agency.
Rick and Lois have been partners and best friends for years. Rick and Lois ran ops all over the world for the CIA. Rick would die for Lois and vice versa.
Lois recruited Rick after he served ten years as a SEAL. She and he were and still are hell on wheels.
Of course Lois is the biggest PITA who ever lived. She's constantly meddling in Ricks life.
Rick, even at fifty nine, has loads of ladies who would love to have a relationship with him. Loads of ladies that would love to end up in his bed. Much to Ricks horror they find him irresistable.
Of course many are younger than he is and Rick just won't go down that road. He feels like he could be their Father or Grandfather. Jeeze. Romantic entanglements are a tough row to hoe for Rick. Especially with Lois on his ass and some very young women trying to get in his bed. Good Grief.
This one starts off with Stacy. Stacy was a high school sweetheart of Rick about forty years ago. Man. Talk about a blast from the past.
Stacy is also a conniving thief and manipulator who Lois hates on site.
So begins one rollicking great read. This one is full of comedy, action, friends and enemies who make the mistake of taking on Rick and Lo. Of course they don't survive but hey, when your not good enough you should stay the hell home.
Of course anyone gunning for Rick and Lois is looking to become very, very dead. Both Rick and Lois are still hell on wheels in the art of survival and staying alive.
Just one funny great read. Five Stars and then some.
There are pluses and minuses. The pluses are the following. The basic set-up of the main characters. Rick is the active partner. His partner in the agency is Lois who handled him when he was a Navy Seal. They play off each other well. The supporting cast is also good. There is his high school love interest who continually gets arrested and gets him in trouble. An actress who hires him for publicity, another who hires him for something else and a workout instructor who wants his body. The humor is a major plus.
The last two pluses lead to the minuses. All these young women are after Rick sexually despite his age. That's ok, but the theme got tired by the end of the book. The humor is very good and the wise-cracking way above par. So the minus? Isn't the worst joke-teller the one who tells you how funny he is? After every quip, pun, joke, barb or wise crack Rick is compelled to tell the reader how the person who heard it chortled, cracked-up, snorted, laughed, guffawed...well you get it. Just tell the joke and get on with it!
All-in-all this is an entertaining mindless romp. It is good enough that I will check out #2 and hope that Mr. DeLeo enjoyed his own jokes a little less and had a theme less hard-worked.
