BODY SCISSORS BY JEROME DOOLITTLE The first novel to introduce Tom Bethany, a quirky, enigmantic PI, with a mysterious past, ex-Air America, Ex-CIA, ex-Harvard, and a Semi-Pro Wrestler, now acting as Left Wing Muscle. The character is very much like the Writer in background, and if you missed Doolittle?s books you are in for a suprise. They really predate the Lehane, Burke Hiasson, Harlan Coben and Crais books, Very funny, ironic, Trageic but ultimately uplifting. The story centres on Bethany being hired to check up on the past of a US Senator, due to be enrolled as Secretary of State. The Repubulicans hire Tough Guy Tom Bethany to check out any skeleton?s in the Professors Closet, and the adventure gets vary hairy, and sureall. The climax is very disturbing, and not for the faint of heart. One of the best books I?ve read in a long time, cozy, but very shocking, as it lulls you into a false sense of security. Catches you on Page one, and then the squeeze is on. Thankfully back in print.
