Sometimes, I found myself rolling my eyes at some of the attempts at humor; but there are some parts that really are laugh out loud funny. I still do not understand how Ralphy gets the "girl" so to speak, in as many ways, as he does. I guess he is good at other things, besides being smart. There are a few constants throughout these short stories: Ralphy is usually drunk or on his way there, Ralphy is usually getting ready to sleep with one lucky(or unlucky?) lady, and Ralphy has to rely on his friends to help him solve the cases.
But the cases are pretty insane which helps add to the comedy. All in all, it is a funny read and will give you something to laugh at, especially if you think your luck is not so great; just remember, it could always be worse. You could be like Ralphy. I have to give this 3 stars.
The author does a great job of making Ralphy come alive and you are soon cheering him on in his endeavors. The short story titles, such as "Flogging a Dead Horse", grab your attention and make you want to read every story. All the plots flow nicely and hold your interest, keeping you guessing the outcome to the very end. I particularly loved the author's name choices for his characters such as Justice Dezerts and Kid `U' Knott. They had me laughing out loud. One of the things that impressed me was that the editing was well-done. This is a very enjoyable book that anyone would enjoy reading. Give it a try!
Ralphy is a character reminiscent of the old school detective characters, he is tough, jaded by life, drinks too much and loves women even more. It is his low resistance to women that often finds him involved in many sexual trysts throughout the book. He loves women but they don't always treat him so well for instance his wife abandoned him by using the old going to the store for cigarettes ploy although neither of them smoked which is a sad but at the same time amusing scenario. He actually waited for her to return not getting the message of her disappearance. Ralphy became so distraught about losing his wife that he spirals into a life fueled by alcohol. He also owns the High Brow Detective Agency (with a partner) and is aided by his tough and beautiful assistant Rachel, who also works for him on a much more intimate level. It was Rachel who snapped him out of his identity crisis by actually beating it out of him. Ralphy is also a rather sad character on another level; as a detective he operates rather poorly as he often enlists the help of others to help him solve his cases. The author has done a great job at crafting the story of Ralphy.
I recommend this book as a good entertaining read especially for those adults interested in detective stories.
