Funny, Great Narration, Weak Mystery

Excellent narration, which is very important in a book with a lot of humor. Best thing about the book is the humor. I definitely laughed a lot and really enjoyed our main character Aaron. He felt like a real guy and I enjoyed his imperfect but heartfelt parenting especially with his son with Asperger's. Clearly Cohen can write. I am just not sure mysteries are his genre. He tries to get around the absurdity of the plot by having his protagonist make comments about how even outrageous authors would reject this plot. Maybe Cohen should have rejected it too. But I enjoyed it enough to give the series another chance. Still, when Aaron points out that he isn't a good detective and would have not gotten anywhere unless he was sought out by both the victim and the killer, it's hard not to agree that he's in the wrong line of work. It actually seems bizarre when at the end his wife suggests he continue with the line of work. So if you read mysteries for the joy of trying to figure out a clever puzzle, this isn't for you.

Cute

Just started this series and it appears to be something I will like. Love the sense of humor and the dated references that provide a mental time stamp for me.
