Devlin “Dev” Haskell, is a local Private Investigator, although not a very busy one!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
He likes to sleep late, drink his Leinenkugel beer, visit seedy establishments, has some questionable friends, been married 3 times and likes any woman that will pay him a little attention.
Dev is hired by Weldon “Mr. Softee” Sofmann, to find out who tried to kill him. Mr. Softee is the local ice cream mogul that is hated by everyone who knows him, so there is a town full of suspects.
As Dev looks deeper into Mr Softee’s claim, he finds himself in over his head. He stumbles upon a gambling ring Mr. Softee and his “niece” have set up using the ice cream trucks. To try and silence him, a dead body is placed in the trunk of his car, on a hot summer day, that he rides around with…ALL DAY! I cannot believe he didn’t realize that smell was coming from HIS trunk!
I found myself shaking my head…a lot!... How could one person get into so much trouble and have that much bad luck? Instead of telling the police and laying low he enlists the help of an old friend, Tony "Dog" Colli. Dog is a felon who has some unorthodox ways of getting the answers they need to prove Dev’s innocence.
This was a fast-paced, quick read with mystery and suspense with a good amount of humor thrown in!
