Book Review - Bombshell - Mike Faricy

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Bombshell is the kind of book you can just relax and read! Nothing heavy or serious here-just plain good mystery writing about characters that are TRULY characters!! I found myself shaking my head at some of the antics. Dev Haskell is a PI who somehow manages to get a job watching a bunch of roller derby stars from England – what ensues is pure slapstick in some regards. I know I will be picking up some of the rest of the books in the Dev Haskell series and more then likely any other books Mike Faricy writes or has written!! If you haven’t already done so click here to read the guest post he wrote for Miki’s Hope!!

From the back of the book:

Dysfunctional, bumbling, crazy babe-magnet Dev Haskell, P.I., becomes the envy of every guy with a heartbeat when he’s hired to watch over a team of gorgeous English roller derby stars. Though he’d rather be standing guard in the shower room, he suddenly finds himself under arrest and found guilty before he’s even charged. He’s got an attorney who drinks too much, a beautiful friend with a bad attitude, a feisty team of females ready to kill him—and no answers. Bombshell is another fast-paced, engrossing suspense thriller from Minnesota’s master of the bizarre, Mike Faricy.

About the Author: (from the tour info)

Mike Faricy is the award winning author of mystery suspense thrillers woven together with a rich strain of humor and even some romance. He and his wife live in Saint Paul, Minnesota and Dublin, Ireland.

His entertaining tales are populated with the sort of quirky, oddball characters we’d all like to know more about, but wisely prefer to keep at a distance. They serve not so much as examples as they do warnings to the rest of us. None of his characters will be saving the world from terrorism, international banking conspiracies or coups to topple the government. Rather, they’re individuals inhabiting a world just below the surface of polite society. The difficulties they find themselves in are usually due to their own bad decisions, but then, bad decisions make for interesting tales.

All of his books are stand alone, read them in any order you wish. Russian Roulette introduces the bizarrely devilish Devlin Haskell as a PI with a foot on both sides of the law. Dev’s adventures continue in Mr. Softee and the soon to be released Bite Me. Mike is currently working on his latest top secret project. He graduated High School from St. Thomas Academy and earned a BA in history from St. Norbert College.
His latest book is the crime fiction, Bombshell.

Thanks for your review of Bombshell, Miki. Dev comes by it honestly, he's only as dysfuntional as me and I thinking it's time to put the 'fun' back in dysfuntional... All the best, Mike Faricy
