Publisher's Summary

Two murders. One detective. Half a brain. 

New York City, 1931: Detective Vic Boyo may not be the brightest bulb in the chandelier, but that doesn't stop him from solving cases as only he can. With a little luck and a whole lot of gumption, Boyo sets out to find the murderer of a local cop. Problem is, Boyo's more interested in a gorgeous femme fatale accused of killing her husband. She's destined for the electric chair, but Boyo's got a hunch she might be innocent. And nobody gets in the way of Boyo's hunches, not even Vic Boyo himself.

silly story

a couple of times during listening to this book I almost stopped because parts were so silly, but I kept listening and finished the story. All and all I am glad I did it is a silly fun read. Kind of light hearted really.

No Elliott Ness

It is the 1930s and Prohibition is in full swing. Set not in Capone's Chicago but in New York City, our hard-boiled police dick--or, "detective," as he prefers to be known--is put on a murder case. Drugs and booze, gangsters and molls, neat (cool, classy, classic) cars, plenty of puns (good and bad), and Pythonesque humor abound. Douglas Reed was clearly having a fabulous time with voices and accents, narrating the tale with all its action and myriad plot twists.
