    A compulsively readable comic thriller with an egalitarian message that will inspire readers of all ages, Boca Knights will have readers in stitches and keep them on the edge of their seats. Only Forman is too unique to compare with anyone else! Ratings are based on a 5-star scale Plot: 5. But instead of enjoying a relaxed, laid-back retirement, Eddie quickly discovers the darker side of Boca Raton's endless sun and palm trees, where hate crimes, counterfeiting, and worse lurk beneath the deceptively calm surface of the cushy retirement communities.

    Oh yeah, his prostate is also acting up. You have to read how Eddie fixes this one! Helped by a reformed computer conman, he's busier with new cases than he was in Boston, ranging from a haunted elevator to a double kidnapping. What results is an entertaining mix of comedy and drama as Eddie squares off with an anti-Semitic hate group. His main man, Eddie Perlmutter, ex-Boston cop attempting semi-retirement in Boca Raton like a fish trying to retire out of the water, is a character for the ages.

    A series of amorous and criminal events occur and steer him back into investigations. Then he creates sanity among the elderly at Milton Manor! Boca Mournings, the second book in the Eddie Perlmutter series following Boca Knightsfinds Eddie having capitalized on his minor celebrity by getting licensed and officially going into business as a private investigator. And that's just Eddie's unfinished business.

Boca mournings book

On top of that, women won't let him retire from affairs of the heart, either. A compulsively readable comic thriller with an egalitarian message that will inspire readers of all ages, Boca Knights will have readers in stitches and keep them on the edge of their seats.

Setting aside all the typographical errors, missing words, and unseparated dialog, the writing was not up to the usual Forman standard. Forman has the hero joining the CIA in when it did not exist This is a hard one to write about…. Former decorated Boston police officer or not, it was a pretty nifty showing for a 60 year old retiree with arthritic knuckles and two bum knees.

Also in Milton Manor, the doings are dire. You win by decisions instead of knockouts. Carl Hiaasen, watch your back. Retirement, my foot.

You have to read on as every case in this book is manic, hilarious and transcendant. Steven Forman's character and writing style reminds me a little of Stuart Woods and his Stone Barrington series - just not as polished or as funny. Part Robert Parker, part Carl Hiaasen, Eddie Perlmutter is a high-testosterone, no-nonsense detective with a tender core, and makes turning sixty a carnal, tropical ride.

Carl Hiaasen, watch your back. With his no-nonsense crime-fighting skills and roll-with-the punches attitude, Eddie hits Boca Raton like of a Nor'easter from Hell, fast, fresh, and unstoppable. Between his amorous adventures and his burgeoning sleuth business, the twists and turns of Eddie's life make this an edge-of-your-seat, uproariously funny thriller.

On top of that, women won't let him retire from affairs of the heart, either.

Book Reviews & Giveaway: Boca Mournings

Writing a novel that covers such a wide span of time is challenging, and in that regard, Forman does a good job. This novel, an epic plus-page soap opera spanning most of the twentieth century and revolving around the saga of one interconnected family, is definitely a departure from the Boca books.

If you want to experience a slightly non-traditional private investigator series that will not only entertain you but also give you serious food for thought, take a trip to Boca Raton with Eddie Perlmutter.

I imagined tiny devils inside her head, hacking away at her brain with pickaxes, destroying her mind, cell by cell, day by day." Boca Mournings is a riotous, ribald look into the wacky world of South Florida.

Not since Carl Hiaasen at his peak has anyone captured the pothole-marred, driving impaired, and geriatric-dominated zaniness as well as the new master of the comic crime novel, Steve Forman/5(3).
