Good light mystery reading, cleverly written and entertaining characters. ( )

Another pleasant entry in the series, with a higher threat level than in the past as well as more romance. Ruzak's evolution is appealing. ( )

Teddy Ruzak reminds me in many ways of Raymond Chandler's hard-boiled detective, Philip Marlowe. I appreciate the off-beat musings of this well-intentioned knight errant.

This fun series continues, and Teddy Ruzak does play the fool. He's not so much "highly effective" as he is "highly lucky". Of course, he still does not possess the necessary private investigator's license so the state of Tennessee shuts him down once again. This poses no problem for our hero, who could not stop detecting if his life depended on it. He has been hired by a woman who suspects her genius husband of cheating on her after twenty years of marriage. Just as the investigation gets going, the wife disappears, and it's Teddy to the rescue! It's a romp of a read, and I look forward to seeing Teddy in the next book. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312383096, Hardcover)

“Deserves mention with the wackiest of today’s comic crime novelists… similar to Donald E. Westlake or Carl Hiaasen.” —Booklist on The Highly Effective Detective Goes to the Dogs
 
In this third installment of Richard Yancey’s hilarious Teddy Ruzak P.I. series, Teddy’s latest client is a good looking dame with long blond hair and great gams. Her husband, she suspects, is stepping out on her, and she hires Teddy to nail the cheater. Then the client disappears. Is this a divorce case—or a murder?
