Perfect summer reading

by lagbolt (WorldCat user published 2009-06-06) Excellent Permalink

Nicely plotted with a quirky pair of almost but not quite detectives, the book is perfect summer reading.  The book combines light social satire with a sort of mapcap action that reminds me of nothing more than Marx Brothers movies.  It's a quick and easy read that's a lot of fun.
