In the second novel of this detective series set in the late 1980s, self-proclaimed unscrupulous bastard Brett Cornell has to figure out who's trying to set him up: Could it be his lovely but meek new client? Or perhaps her equally lovely but far-from-meek roommate? Or might it actually be the beautiful and dynamic aerobics instructor he's recently taken up with?
In the meantime, Brett's legendary, Adonis-like features get severely damaged when he ends up catching the beating of his life - emotionally as well as physically - before he finally nails the identity of the real killer!

It's great bein' me, ain't it?
Still dreaming of retiring in four years time with loads of money and even more women to perform his every request, the self proclaimed unscrupulous bastard and P.I., Brett Cornell has a new client, Marilyn, the fiance, no less, of his arch enemy, the pugnacious policeman, Ralph. She is very attractive and, she tells him, still a virgin. Definitely seen as an open challenge by Brett. Even better, she also has a gorgeous room mate, Ginger.
All goes very well for Brett ("if you catch my drift") until he first gets badly beaten and loses part of his ear, then becomes prime suspect in a murder.
Told from the point of view of Brett himself, the antics of this self absorbed, egotistical, rude, crude, insensitive, narsasistic brute of a man may not be politically correct but sure is very funny. And he is perfectly captured in the narration of Travis Henry Carter as he reads with understanding and emotion and great intonation and pauses. His voicings of the other characters is also superb, especially those of the several women in the tale: he has a full cast seemingly at his disposal. A remarkable performance.
This is not a book for the easily offended: Brett really is a disgusting example of manhood. But for sometimes laugh out loud antics of this sex crazed moustachioed 'hero', this book cannot be beaten..

Nothing beats Brett.
It's impossible not to love this book, in fact it's impossible not to love the whole series!
My only warning is that if you got a broken rib and don't want a world of pain then you should wait because even without a broken rib there will be some pain involved with so much laughter.
All I can say is that this is not your usual book, there was a lot of thinking done in writing those great books.
I'm totally in love with this series, there is no equal for Brett and probably will never be !!!
Absolutely recommended !

Brett strike again!
This story is hilarious. The author has a special humorous. The main character, Brett, is a real specimen (womanizer, jerk…). Honestly, Brett's attitude is too gross to be mad about him! The narration is great. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.
