More deadly funny business has wise guy and wannabe ace detective, Marty Golden, tracking clues and helping police solve a multi-jurisdictional case. On an overnight camping trip with his niece Marty literally trips over the dead body of his friend and poker buddy. As usual, Marty’s life is chaotic already, but he is sure he is on the trail to finding the killer. Marty keeps plucking at loose ends and driving everyone he interviews nuts.
I enjoyed this fast-paced humorous, mystery just as much as Uncle and Ants. Marc Jedel keeps the intensity while keeping the comedic activity constantly bubbling. His writing is clever, and the plotting is meticulous and exceptionally well-executed. Many of the same characters that were introduced in Uncle and Ants are back but the author does not fail to introduce new wacky minions to the ensemble, along with a new girlfriend and his crazy cousin.
This book is a gem with its great plotting and unusual cast. I highly recommend it!
