Narrator Alex Barnaby 30 and NASCAR driver Sam Hooker fight crime the only way they know how - leaving a trail of chaos. Hooker's friends Rosa and Felicia call for help. To find a missing man, Alex and Sam go deep into the underbelly of Miami, survive Petro Voodoo, explosions, gift- wrapped body parts, a deadly swamp chase, and Hooker's mom.
So I picked up this book up because I am a MEGA Janet Evanovich fan, especially her Stephanie Plum series (a review for #23 will be up shortly after it's release). I had thought this was the first book in a series but it is actually third in the series but the first book in the set. That being said I was definitely a little bit lost through out this book. Then it totally leaves off with a cliff hanger so that you absolutely want to continue. Now I just have to find the rest of them in order to continue as this is the only one the library system had.
All that being said, I loved the art work and the general story of the book. The general character outline has me wanting to go back and read the novels based around them, so I can get to know them better. I was slightly disappointed with the lack of comedy in this book. It had it's moments but it was no Stephanie Plum book that is for sure.
All in all I found the art and story good. The comedy affect was lacking for an Evanovich book. Oh and it ends with a cliffhanger so make sure you have access to the whole set before starting.
