Two murders. One detective. Half a brain.
1931, New York City: Detective Vic Boyo may not be the brightest bulb in the chandelier, but that doesn’t stop him from solving cases as only he can. With a little luck and a whole lot of gumption, Boyo sets out to find the murderer of a local cop. Problem is, Boyo’s more interested in a gorgeous femme fatale accused of killing her husband. She’s destined for the electric chair, but Boyo’s got a hunch she might be innocent. And nobody gets in the way of Boyo’s hunches, not even Vic Boyo himself.
I had a great time reading this book mainly because the author did an extraordinary job of weaving humor into a detective story. I found this so refreshing because recently all the detective stories I’ve read were serious and dark.
Milo James Fowler is a natural writer, his words never came across as forced or strained. The occasional yet consistent use of 1930’s slang was fun without being distracting. After reading this book I can see why Mr. Fowler is an author and English teacher, his love for the written word is obvious.
I would strongly encourage everyone to read this book. It has something for everyone.
Happy reading everyone!!!
