Overview

Continuing the Dev Haskell - Private Investigator Series with Case 4: Bomshell

Dysfunctional, bumbling, crazy babe-magnet Dev Haskell, Private Investigator, has just returned to his date to find she's left with another guy. Down, but not heartbroken, Dev returns to the bar for a drink when he meets a gorgeous woman that presents him with an offer he would be foolish to refuse.

As the envy of every guy with a heartbeat Dev's hired to watch over a team of gorgeous English roller derby stars. Though he'd rather be standing guard in the shower room, he suddenly finds himself in a world of trouble when he's placed under arrest and found guilty before he's even charged.

With an attorney who drinks too much, a beautiful woman with a bad attitude, a feisty team of females ready to kill him - and no answers. Dev must once again prove his innocence, find the actual killer and take a few moments in between to once again be tricked by a beautiful woman.

Meet the Author

Mike Faricy is the award wining author of mystery suspense thrillers woven together with a rich strain of humor and romance. He and his wife live in St. Paul, Minnesota and Dublin, Ireland.

His entertaining tales are populated with the sort of quirky, oddball characters we'd all like to know more about, but wisely prefer to keep at a distance. They serve not so much as examples but more often as warnings to the rest of us. None of Mike's characters will be saving the world from terrorism, international banking conspiracies or coups to topple the government. Rather, they're individuals inhabiting a world just below the surface of polite society. The difficulties they find themselves in are usually due to their own bad decisions, but then bad decisions make for interesting tales.

Mike Faricy has created another fun-filled romp with Detective Dev Haskell, a legend in his own mind. This time, Dev meets up with a roller derby cutie who is looking for security for a visiting team’s star attraction, who is being stalked by a nutcase who sends severed fingers. Of course, mayhem ensues wherever Dev appears, and he ends up bloodied, bruised, and in jail once again. This is a fast-paced fun and wacky farce with lots of twists and turns. Nobody but Dev could manage to bumble into so many bizarre situations and make them even screwier. You have to keep reading just to find out how he can possibly get out of the messes he creates. Very creative, Faricy always makes me laugh. Witty dialog is one of his fortes. His characters are deeply flawed but loveable, and come across as real people. Editing could be better, but not a deal-breaker. Keep ‘em coming, Mike!

I can honestly say that Dev is one of my absolute favorite fictional private investigators. He’s just your average, typical male with all the bells and whistles eternal bachelorhood brings. What I enjoy most about reading Dev Haskell novels, is that the author doesn’t deviate from Dev’s character, and his continuous pattern of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, so you know what to expect when you meet up with him in the next book. His behavior - which often invokes a good measure of eye-rolling in the reader – is predictable, yet strangely endearing. The only thing that differs in each novel is the kinds of trouble he get into. And you can bet your last dollar, there’s always a woman involved. This, of course, makes for some laugh-out-loud, light reading. In par with the previous Dev Haskell novels, the author continues Dev’s misadventures using a well-known cast of supporting characters familiar to readers of these novels. What makes these characters really memorable is their realistically relatable flaws. The only disappointed here for me was that I could tell very early on who the culprit was going to be, and the motive behind it all. I was hoping to be wrong, but as it turns out, my guess was right all along - thus the four-star rating. Authentic dialogue and excellent one-liners kept me in stitches. This is a first-rate read and again the author managed to create another enjoyable book that will leave readers wanting more!
