    A fast moving intriguing mystery that will prove interesting to all readers.

    A diverse crowd of well developed characters provide a historically under-employed detective continuous challenges and intrigues. Fast paced, fun reading!

    Wow! The book is a rare gem. I am a fan for life!

    I picked up the book and was captivated from the first chapter. The turns and twists of the plot were countless. The book was funny. The work is a cross of David Lettman, Get Smart and Sherlock Holmes wrapped up in a fun package. Recommmended reading for anyone with a funny bone!

    Bad Vibrations

    Bad Vibrations is one of the funniest, most well-written mysteries I have enjoyed in some time. The dialog is snappy, the characters are hilarious, and the descriptions of the scenery are memorable. This book is very creative in plot and style and is one of the most original mysteries I can recall. This book would make an excellent screen play and someone should make a film of it. I hope we see many more from the author please don't stop.

    A Mystery With Humor and Punch

    Four young and attractive women are found murdered in a most bizarre manner (No, I won¿t tell how), and the bored and stumbling cops don¿t seem to have a clue. So, it is up to our hero and protagonist, Chauncey McFadden private eye, to unravel this complex case. Unfortunately, Chauncey is not too swift himself, but as expected, he lurches forward and finally solves the murders after many detours into strip clubs and all night diners. This is a very funny (yet serious) novel by a new author. Chauncey is about 75% Guy Noir and 25% Mickey Spillane, so the reader has some idea of what a character this PI really is. The story is told in the first person through the eyes of Chauncey, which gives the novel a lot of added punch.

    one you can't put down

    This book is a great mix of humor and mystery. Chauncey McFadden is an unlikely type to be involved in a serious murder investigation. The other characters involved are equally entertaining as we follow Chauncey through the investigation into the murder of 'Boom Boom' Saperstein. Hope to see more of McFadden in the future.

    Bad Vibrations

    I don't usually read mysteries but a friend raved about this book so much I had to give it a try. Am I glad I did! Bad Vibrations is one super funny, well-written piece of work. The crazy characters, beautiful scenery descriptions, and humor are woven into a fascinating plot. That bar scene in Long Beach is a classic. This is one of the most entertaining books I have read in some time, and I hope that more are to come. Get this author on Oprah.
