Well, it looks like Robinson's done it again. In this sequel to (the also superb) Mr. Blank, he continues with the adventures of our titular hero, as Blank is reluctantly pulled out of retirement and (barely) stays ahead of the various shadowy organizations trying to kill him, all while trying to clear the name of his recently arrested girlfriend. As in the first book, Robinson manages to combine vintage noir with humor to create something wholly unique, a genuinely engrossing mystery that is also hysterically funny. If you're a fan of Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett, the Coen brothers, or Jesse Ventura, then do yourself a favor and read this book (and Mr. Blank too). You won't regret it. Can't wait for the next entry in this series!

I'm fortunate enough to be an early reader of Robinson's books, as I've mentioned in other reviews. I feel lucky to be in this position, as it allows me to encourage anyone who comes across these reviews to check out the book, especially if you read and enjoyed the first one. The opening chapter immediately grabbed me, and it was a tremendously fun ride after that. Mina continues to be a really well written love interest, and Blank is still full (but not TOO full) of pop culture one liners that work as a seasoning to an already delicious dish. Justin's descriptions have always been one of my favorite things about his writing. Blank is believable as a protagonist, particularly because he doesn't always get away with everything. He lies a lot to get himself out of corners, and I love that it doesn't always work out for him. Also, Robinson does a really great job of including characters who aren't your Standard White, Straight Male. There's a transvestite character who appears, and an extremely pleasant gay couple who sells guns. His characters are a lot of fun, and although some of them feel a little larger than life, I don't think that's a negative here at all. The dialogue (and internal monologue) are both great fun. Do yourself a favor; check this book out. If nothing else, you'll learn a lot about pop culture you probably didn't know before. :)
