Book: Blueboy - The problem with being called a hero is that people expect you to act like one by George Pica
|4.7 stars based on the 3 most helpful Amazon reviews|
George Picaabout this book: "Blueboy" takes murder very seriously – but has a lot of fun with it, too. As one reader observed: There are parts in the book where I actually laughed out loud.
Police detective Thomas Gaston finds it less amusing. He realizes there are worse things than being 43 years old and moving back in with your father to make ends meet. What he can't understand is why all those things are happening to him. When he is accused of burning down his favorite watering hole, he is stripped of his duties as chief of the Tacoma Police Department's Detective Bureau. The local newspaper seems to be taking delight in folding, spindling and mutilating his reputation and his career. His legal counsel is a former judge with a reputation for cutting corners and irritating other members of the bar. And two shadowy figures are trying to kill him.
With that many distractions, it's no wonder he's having so much trouble solving the murder a childhood friend that he completely overlooks a shockingly obvious clue to her killer.
See if you can find it.
