Overview

From National Bestselling author, Leslie Langtry...

Coney Bombay isn't your average PhD. While he may be well versed in philosophy, he's also one of the most lethal members of the Bombay Family of assassins. Choosing to travel the world operating carnival rides and spending quite evenings knitting with his pet guinea pig, even in his crazy family, Cy stands out as wild card. But after a series of run-ins with perennial grad student, Veronica Gale, the cool cat is starting to feel a little hot under the collar.

In her research, Ronnie Gale has seen a lot. Problem is, she hasn't actually done a lot. The mysterious Cy Bombay seems about to change all of that when a whirlwind adventure takes them from the small-town country fair to the outer reaches of Mongolia, and into a murder mystery with Cy squarely in the center.

Ronnie's going to have to climb out of her ivory tower and get a little down and dirty if she wants to survive Cy Bombay's wild ride.

Editorial Reviews

__ - Fresh Fiction
“A fun, fast-paced, witty mystery with an enjoyable style of writing and cast of characters.”
__ - RT BOOKReviews
"Delightfully wacked-out series about surprisingly hilarious assassins. (Cy's) distinct viewpoint is both amusing and insightful as he struggles with love and a new assignment. Talented Langtry has a real gift for the absurd."
__ - Book Illuminations
"Leslie Langtry's I SHOT YOU BABE is a wacky, wonderful mystery romance with a dark, clever offbeat sense of humor.”

    R

    Enjoyed the other books in the series with this one being the eception. I was tired reading about body wresling in Mongolia.

    Quirky and offbeat

    This is a really good book if you're looking for a quirky, offbeat read. Cy, the narrarator is not the typical male assassin. Sure, he's tough, he can kill just like any other assassin. But Cy is more than that. He's also a carny who can knit and loves his pet guinea pig, Sartre. The story mainly focuses on Cy's travels. His interactions/feelings towards Veronica are also a big part of the book.
    This would be a great read for the beach. It doesn't have a deep, complex plot line, nor does it have steamy love scenes throughout. However, if your looking for a light read that makes you chuckle at times and shows assassins in a new light then this is the perfect book for you.

    read the paperback

    I love this series! They are fun and have great laugh out loud sections, as well as enjoyable characters and stories.

    Unfortunately, the NOOKbook versions appear to be some form of the pre-published versions. There are numerous notes to and from the author within the text, as well as redundant sentences and paragraphs. This made it difficult to read in sections. They got progressively worse with each book in the series. This one was the worst. Although it did give a glimpse of the writing and editing process.

    I recommend reading the actual paperbacks instead of the NOOKbooks. I love the author and would like to read more from her.

    fabulous romantic suspense

    He is considered the family odd duck as Coney "Cy" Bombay has a PhD in philosophy and enjoys working on the carney circuit as a mechanic as he has for the last dozen years while his traveling companion is Sartre, a guinea pig. Post-grad student Veronica Gale interviews Cy in Wisconsin, but she walks away angrily when he glibly makes commentary on their similar background as he like her was a two decade plus student, but he moved on with dreams of Henry Kissinger impersonations. Perhaps his proclamation that his ambitious cousin's goal is driving an ice cream truck drove her off.

    His family assigns Cy an assassination in Mongolia. While waiting there for the right moment, Cy enjoys the Mongolian Naadam Festival when he is stunned with the arrival of Veronica. As he wrestles with Ronnie, he wonders how to combine a murder with romance as his desire for her is killing him especially when she asks him to help her find out who the Anderson killer is.

    The final Bombay assassination romantic suspense thriller is a fabulous finish due to irreverent Cy, his "son" Sartre, the locale, and the rest of the family. Veronica (don't call her Ronnie) seems more of a straight woman to the comedic lead male as he is Grouch Marx to her Bud Abbott (forgive the mixing of comedians). Fans will enjoy the capers of cousin Cy as the curtain comes down on the wonderful Bombay brood, who prove the Republicans are right as a family that kills together stays together.
