Of Mice and Murderers - Book 1 in The Z-Detective Series

Rated 1.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Meet Big Bob Zapolska (Z for short), an unlicensed private eye whose healthy disregard for legal "technicalities," lands him in the middle of some interesting situations. Z may be a loner. He may be a loser. He may, in fact, be a dangerous pyromaniac. But if someone has cheated you --- if someone is crowding you --- it's good to have the Z-man on your side!

Review by: Nora Lee on Oct. 20, 2011 :
I have three things to say about this story. It's boring, boring, boring. Sorry, but I'd like some action instead of endless introspection. Editing and sentence structure are both bad, bad, bad. Details of small trivial items are overwhelming and the writer uses the name Z over and over; Z did this, Z did that. ZZZZZZZZs put me to sleep. After reading 15% I still wasn't interested and quit. I don't recommend it, so that makes it a 1.0.

Review by: Marti xx on July 28, 2011 : (no rating)
Great story, great writing. The only nagging annoyance was the constant flamboyant and unnecessary use of quotation marks throughout the book. One suspects that either he had no editor, or that his editor could not dissuade him from this annoying use, and I found that it distracted me from fully enjoying an otherwise excellent book.
