What a fun read. Love Jake Wonderman- the Shakespear quoting main character and the way Riskin takes us on a romp from the swank Hamptons to Brooklyn all the way to Russia! Perfect beach/vacation page-turner. Can't wait for the sequel.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Whatever you use for a bookmark, forget it. With his debut novel, 'Scrambled Eggs,' Boris Riskin makes sure you won't need it. His Shakespeare-quoting, reluctant sleuth Jake Wanderman doesn't mind breaking a few omelets in hot pursuit of purloined (Faberge) eggs that everybody from the FBI to the KGB to the Ruskie Mafia is also after -- is this the schlmiel his wife has just dropped for (possibly) another woman (who resembles, a lot, Martha Stewart)? Jake has a lot riding on finding and returning them jewels to their rightful owners, and since the latter happens to be Mother Russia, so do we. He also has a lot of fun doing it, and so do we. Here's great mystery writing, As You Like It.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
