Hitchcock Brown is a private investigator. In Two Thursdays, the Chief of police asks him for his help routing out a major drug problem in Cincinnati. It’s a problem which may involve members of his own department. They both learn it involves a lot more than that. Part two of the series.
My Review. Hitchcook Brown the coffee loving PI is back with another case, but this time he is helping his long time friend Grildpork, the chief of Police. In Cincinnati. Yet again it is a hilarious novel with loads going on, with plenty of coffee stops for Brown, written from the point of Hitchcock, this second book in the series, can be read as a standalone book or not, that depends whether you get a hold of Walking Backwards first. It is a shortish with only 139 pages, so it can be read quickly.
Summary from goodreads.com, please scroll down for my review. Hitchcock Brown is a private investigator. “Walking Backwards” is the story of a case he has taken on that may be just a little out of his league. Using his intelligence, wit and unusual sense of humor he attempts to solve the mystery. He also hopes to survive long enough to do so.
I was given a copy from the author in return for an honest review. Please be aware that my review may contain spoilers. Part one of the series.
My Review. The title is great and in just a page or two you have an insight of what it means, great start. This is a shortish book, a quick read, but there is loads going on. There are no grammatical or spelling errors which is a joy when reading debut novels. It is one of those books you can read if you keep getting interrupted as it is easy to pick up and put down. It is very original. Written in the first person from the point of the private detective this is a humourous novel, there is no gore/blood or violence, another plus in my point of view.
