Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Artie Deemer, introduced in Lover Man , is still supported in style by his financially significant other--his dog Jellyroll, star of movies and dog food commercials. Artie spends much of his time at the Upscale Poolroom on New York's Upper West Side, but despite his easy life (or because of it), he is ``languid, torpid and depressed.'' His spirits rise when he falls in love with Crystal Spivey, a tough and beautiful pool player from Brooklyn. But her unhappy past catches up with her, drawing Deemer into a conspiracy that includes kidnapping, a sordid murder, many foul-mouthed villains and corruption at high levels of government. Dishing out plenty of idiosyncratic details (poolroom regulars have such names as Ted Bundy, Too Louis, Never-Miss Monroe and Outta-Town Brown), Murphy occasionally trips on the one-note humor as he delivers a fast-paced, if not always credible, tale. (Oct.)
Bill Ott
"Here I was, an eccentric hermit who habitually thought through even the simplest of day-to-day actions from all possible perspectives before deciding to do nothing. . . . Now I was leading a covert incursion against a racketeer's suburban mansion to rescue my lover who may or may not be there. I didn't hold out much hope of success." You've gotta love Artie Deemer, mystery fiction's laziest hero. The jazz-loving, pool-playing Artie, you see, lives off his dog, Jellyroll, who just happens to be a star of both TV commercials and feature films, releasing Artie from the need to do anything besides listen to Monk (or Lester or maybe Miles) and shoot a little nine-ball. The world has a way of jumping out and grabbing him, though, as it did in "Lover Man" and as it does again here when Artie falls hard for pool champion Crystal Spivey, whose messy past is full of Mob money launderers willing to kill for a missing videotape. Yes, amateur sleuths strain credibility--especially lazy, antisocial ones--but Artie is so damned much fun you'll willingly suspend buckets of disbelief just for the pleasure of hanging out with him. Rooting for Artie is like pulling for every poor sap whose life was ever invaded by too much reality.
