Not as good as the other Mystery Bookseller books
These books were my first foray into Crime Fiction, and there's so much more to them than just the detective story; they're very quirky. So if you're not a fan of the genre, give these a go.
The writing was a bit of a let down in this one; it wasn't as funny, and actually giving Mystery Man reasons for his odd personality takes away from, rather than gives to, what I liked so much about him.
Stephen Armstrong brings the character to life beautifully. I actually think the audio books will be better than reading them.
It seemed like it was the last one. Given that it wasn't as good as the others, the Mystery Man is probably best put to rest regardless. It's a shame though, I liked this series much better than Bateman's other works.
Laugh out loud. I did, several times.
