Normally I do not like to be negative about an author, because I know that everyone has their own idea about what makes a good book. I also know that being an author might sound fun, fulfilling and a great way to make money in one's spare time, but it is NOT. The main ingredient for ANY good book is to write, flesh out each character and remain true to the storyline. This book literally put me to sleep, in fact it made me think about false teeth resting in a cup of water by a person's bed and I have no idea WHY (and no, I do not have false teeth).To those who enjoy this series I say, "I am glad you enjoy it." However, I cannot in good conscience say that I found this book even a tiny bit interesting. It was one cliché after another and I actually wound up hoping Dev would be killed off at the end. THAT would have made me feel justice had been served.
This is the second in the Dev Haskell series I have read and honestly compared to the other one I read this one seemed rushed and unfinished.
of the P.I.s in the oldtime movies. He maybe a womanizer but we get the innuendo without the nitty gritty. Kind of like the movies where "they kissed and then" ... fade black.I like using my imagination, but the imagery Mr. Faricy conjures up is so much more edifying. The humor is also great, it's nice to read a gory murder and still be able to laugh. Looking forward to Dev Haskell's next adventure, and the ever patient Heidi and his friend at the DMV.
Like most P.I. stories the financial side of how such a person can operate and stay in business seemed to be a bit whispey and left to the imagination. But I liked the bar across the street bit as a convenient place to stage some of the story.
The story held my interest so that when forced to put it down, I made it a point to get back to it ASAP.
I do feel I am missing some backstory. Perhaps I should read the first book of the series.

This is easy reading at it's best with quick quips, fast women and an even faster storyline. Even so Dev's mask was lifted a little and the hard-as-nails, former soldier with a hint of PTSD slipped out. I liked this more rounded Dev even more.
Technically Mike has allowed the odd spelling mistake to creep in but it's pretty minor stuff.
5-Star entertainment from a master of the down-at-heel PI genre.
Mike Faricy writes in an uncomplicated way making for an easy, exciting read. His story lines are, in my opinion, believable with each story having its own fantastic plot. I'm now going to move on to his other series to explore his further characters. Highly recommended.
Actually - there was a surprise. The awful, awful ending. It stopped at a completely unexpected point with no closure. I still love the character of Dev but could you mix it up a bit with who the baddie is?
The plot was ok and flowed well enough. The last part of the story moved quickly and didn’t seem to have much going on.
Easy enough read though.
