EXCERPT: I cautiously got out of the truck and looked for possible assailants. Finding none, I crossed the lot and swung through the door into the lobby.
Mr Wexler was in the lobby, waiting for the senior citizens minibus to pick him up. ‘You hear about Mo Bedemier?’ Mr Wexler asked. ‘Isn’t he a pip? I tell you, the man’s got a lot of jewels. It’s about time somebody did something about the drug problem.’
‘He’s suspected of killing a whole bunch of men!’
‘Yep. He’s on a roll, all right.’
The elevator doors opened, and I got in, but I didn’t feel like going to my apartment. I felt like striking out at someone.
I got out of the elevator and confronted Mr Wexler. ‘Killing is wrong.’
‘We kill chickens,’ Mr Wexler said. ‘We kill cows. We kill trees. So big deal, we kill some drug dealers.’
It was hard to argue with that kind of logic because I like cows and chickens and trees much better than drug dealers.
ABOUT THIS BOOK: Stephanie Plum’s fast becoming the most unpopular woman in New Jersey. Even her own mother can’t love her for taking on the job of tracking down Uncle Mo, everybody’s favourite candy store owner. Cursed with a disastrous new hair colour and an increasing sense that it’s time to get a new job, the world’s favourite bounty hunter sets off on her latest adventure, with a little ‘help’ for her new sidekick, hooker turned file clerk Lula, who’s just itching to get a felon in the back of her racy red firebird …
MY THOUGHTS: Three to Get Deadly by Janet Evanovich was just the antidote I needed to another book I was reading that was a particularly depressing read.
It’s slapstick comedy, silly and funny and fun. Snort coffee out through your nose silly.
Yes, it’s a series, but this and the occasional other I have read all work as stand alone, as there’s plenty of background information embedded in the story.
An enjoyable ‘filler’ read.
