Overview

Skirt chasing, wise cracking, dysfuntional PI Dev Haskell leaves his usual stool at the Spot Bar to take on what looks like a cakewalk job, providing protection for Mr. Softee. Turns out Mr. Softee is anything but... He's a ruthless 'entrepreneur' with a flash temper, a mean streak a mile wide, a laundry list of people who want to do him in and a sex crazed girlfriend named Lola. Things go from bad to worse until Dev enlists the help of former client, sometimes friend and felon, Tony "Dog" Colli. Murder, mayhem, double cross and bodies follow in their wake. It's the St. Paul your mother warned you about, delivered with a healthy serving of the bizarre. A fast paced tale of bottom feeders and criminal class. Mr Softee is another journey through the screwed up world that's Dev Haskell's life.

Meet the Author

Mike Faricy lives in St. Paul, Minnesota and Dublin, Ireland. He's been a soldier, a bartender, and a freelance journalist. He's sold designer cakes as well as owned a painting and decorating company. On the off chance none of his paying jobs offend you, he also plays the bagpipes in the Brian Boru Irish Pipe Band.

All Mike's books are stand alone, you can read them in any order. He writes of the St. Paul your mother warned you about, filled with the sort of oddballs and flakes that make us curious, but we wisely prefer to keep at a distance. None of his characters will be saving the world from terrorism, international banking conspiracies or coups to take over the government. Mike's characters inhabit a world just below the surface of polite society with one foot on either side of the law. They serve not so much as an example but as a warning. The circumstances of their lives are usually the result of bad decisions, but then bad decisions make for very interesting stories.

    Devlin ¿Dev¿ Haskell, is a local Private Investigator, although

    Devlin “Dev” Haskell, is a local Private Investigator, although not a very busy one!
    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!

    Review 6******

    I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

    This is another Dev Haskell novel. I LOVED IT!

    Dev Haskell is a skirt chasing, beer drinking, lovable Private Investigator. I love him to bits, but sometimes I want to throttle him too! I honestly don't know if he has a guardian angel looking after him, but he seems to get into trouble at a drop of a hat!

    In this page turner of a book, he is hired by Mr. Softee, an Ice Cream mogul, to provide protection. What happens next is a wild ride of explosions, car chases, mistaken identity, double cross and murder! 
    This is a fantastic story that had me shaking my head at Dev's antics at one moment, and marveling at how someone can have such bad luck the next! I was hooked from the first page! I loved meeting Tony "Dog" Colli. He is decidedly crazy, but I can understand why Dev is his friend; His hygiene habits leave a lot to be desired though! *shudder!!*
    I am most definitely looking forward to reading more of Dev's adventures in the future!

    Mike Faricy is a fantastic author! I love his writing style. It is fast paced, but it is also witty. He is one of my favourite authors, and I will read any of his books in the future.

    I highly recommend this book if you love detective fiction that is highly addictive! - Lynn Worton
