I miss Rich Wicky

This is my third Hautman. The previous two Joe Crow ones were 5 stars for me. This one is not not quite scary enough for a comic thriller. Drawing Dead had menacing characters to sharpen the edges. The central plot is that Hyatt Hilton is supposed to be thinking up a scheme connected with his wedding and the fraudulent Amaranthine cult, but that didn't keep me on the edge of my seat. Crow's depression is well described, and so is life as an American in Paris, and all sorts of other good stuff and comic incidents that have nothing to do with the main plot.

Hilarious and Perfect!

Funniest book I've read since Hiaasen's "Native Tongues", and that's saying a lot! Bizarre, but on target, and everything happens and works out with satisfaction more amazing than your best meal! Loved every minute of it! Wanted to find out what happened, but didn't want to go to fast, since the book would be "used up" too soon. I'm sure you know what I mean!Again, if your sense of humor doesn't include Hiaasen, and if you don't like Elmore Leonard, for example, you won't like this book. But if you do, you're going to cry when you finish, as it will again be a long time until we find another book like this.

I never knew what to expect.

I've read all Pete Hautman's books and look forward to each new one coming out. He doesn't fall into the typical formulas and devices of the genre, so the fresh take is refreshing.

Move over Hiaasan, Hauptman is on top

A very, very bright addition to the offbeat detective genre. Better than Shames, as good as Hiaason. Develops solid likable characters, great plot lines, and most importantly, a well written book. Keep them coming.
