    Story

    He used to be on the bomb squad, but it's not until he transfers out that Chris Mankowski really begins juggling with dynamite. Rape and revenge are just the tip of the iceberg in a twisty tale that brings Detroit's denizens to life - and occasional death - in all their seedy glory. Electrifying, explosive, and unexpected, this is Elmore Leonard at his suspenseful best.

    What would have made Freaky Deaky better?

    A decent story line and characters


    What didn’t you like about Frank Muller’s performance?

    Performance OK, but material he had to work with was just awful


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The writing is not so bad, but not nearly good enough to redeem the book up to being worth reading.


    Any additional comments?

    The author here attempts a hybrid of a farce and a film noir mystery. It is not nearly funny enough for the farce to work and as a mystery it is ridiculous.
