Book `Em is a good edit and proofing away from being an entertaining read. The protagonist, Eamon Shute, is one of those larger than life heroes who is entertaining and seems to figure in stories that keep you on the edge of your seat. McFadden's hero combines street smarts and the ability to defend himself, leftover from his upbringing as a poor Irish lad, with an innate intelligence and a sensitive, loyal side. Combine that with his financial situation, a windfall from the Irish lottery, and Shute is a package that should appeal to most women. Shute's girlfriend Nicky is also an appealing character. A transplant to Miami, from the Dominican Republic in her case, Nicky is smart and independent. They make a great couple. In contrast, the villains in this story are slime balls. There is never doubt as to who you're rooting for and who you aren't in Book `Em. Although I think it often feels like a thriller and the villains are mostly clear, there is still plenty of mystery, with the outcome in question to the end. The majority of the problems are minor: things like "of" instead of "if," a missing or extra word. There were a few instances of verb tense errors or using a form of a word that doesn't exist according to the dictionaries I consulted (unorthodoxed). Last, using the idiom "once and awhile" instead of "once in a while" occurred multiple times. I'd have no qualms recommending Book `Em to anyone who likes mysteries or thrillers, if they have a reasonably high tolerance for typos. However, the sheer number, averaging at least once every five to six printed pages, is too many. **Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy. **
