Book Review: The Dance by Mike Faricy

The Dance is a Novella in the highly entertaining Dev Haskell series. Dev, along with his golden retriever, Morton, are hired by a woman to investigate her former daughter-in-law, but all is not as it seems. Turns out there are trust fund issues and Dev begins to learn a lot more than he ever expected.



My Review

I chose to read this novella after receiving a free e-copy from the author. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Dev Haskell is a P.I. who is currently down on his luck. He’s a womanizer but he behaves himself in The Dance. In fact, he does something so sweet that it brought tears to my eyes.

Dev also gets a case that his client (a woman he can’t stand) wants solved in three days. He does solve it but not quite with the results his client was hoping for. I love this guy!

This novella is short but still has a good story. There are a few unanswered questions, though, that I would have liked answered.

About the Author

I was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, I still live there as well as in Dublin, Ireland. I’ve been a soldier, freelance journalist, tended bar, sold designer cakes, owned a painting and decorating company along with a number of other schemes and scams. If that doesn’t offend you I also play bagpipes with the Brian Boru Irish Pipe Band. All my books stand alone, read them in whatever order you wish. They are filled with the sort of oddballs we are all curious about, but wisely, prefer to keep at a distance. None of my characters will be saving the world from terrorism, international banking conspiracies or coups to take over the government. Rather, they inhabit a world just below the surface of polite society, characters with one foot on either side of the law. The circumstances they find themselves in are usually due to bad decisions, but bad decisions lead to interesting stories. They serve not so much as an example but as a warning to us all. Thanks for taking the time, happy reading.
