Product Description

Sometime private eye, Dickie Mullins would be a lot better off if only he ignored ex-wife Rae Nell's get rich schemes.  But then, that's not how Dickie operates. Rae Nell has just been hired by rip-off artist Terry Taggert to promote his unique line of steaks.  What better way to introduce the dining public than an open house at Dickie's Emporium of Dance, a meat market of a slightly different nature.  By the time the open house is concluded Rae Nell's fling with her boss Terry Taggert has erupted into a very public affair and Terry's wife, heiress Helen Hardy, is looking for justice.  Meanwhile, Terry's assistant, Luther Suggs, is increasing the body count just as the health department closes down Dickie's Emporium of Dance.  Did we mention the fur coat scandal?  Fortunately for Dickie his girlfriend D.J. is still talking to him, and eventually he listens. 

You're hooked from the first page to the final word of this hilarious read.  Hang on tight for plot twists and turns sprinkled with wonderful surprises along the way.  Another magnificent cast of Faricy's madcap characters and incredibly fast moving action make this a must read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chow for Now by Mike Faricy 7 October 2012
By Kindle Customer - Published on

I have to say this was one of the most unique plotlines I have read lately. The story kept me turning the pages and the characters and protagonists were both funny and endearing. Nicely written with a good mix of mystery, bad guys, and quirky characters that will keep you laughing right up to the end.

The story is set in St. Paul and there are quite a few local references that will be of interest to people who dwell or live in the city, but it is still not too local as to put off other readers.

I would recommend this one to my friends, but do be aware there is a need for some editing. There are spelling and grammar errors, a little editing would not be amiss here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny Farce with a Macabre Plot 3 July 2013
By DaveReadsALot - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This author writes crime novels with an eye on the dumb criminals. In this novel, we also have hapless and inept characters who lie to everyone and get taken in by the dumb criminals. There's little mystery and some adventure but mostly the story is about the relationships of the characters and the situations they get themselves into. The situations are humorous and the better characters do have some redeeming attributes.

I found a few errors in the book but I enjoyed the experience. I was a bit disappointed in the ending because it seemed to wrap up some things too quickly and leave some characters out entirely.
4.0 out of 5 stars Darker and more disturbing! 24 February 2013

Being an ardent reader I have come accross various titles by the same author.
Chow for now has the same humour but i found it darker and grittier than any of his other work.
Being a dog lover I found it more disturbing that dog meat was offered on the menu than the alluding to canabalism! I
know, weird. But still.

The plot line was solid, the characters interesting but I missed Dev Haskell, the hero of most of this authors books!
In short, the dark and grittier plot will probably appeal to a wider range of readers than some of his other titles but I personally prefer the more familiar writing style I have come accustomed too!

4.0 out of 5 stars When life really goes to the dogs 22 June 2012

Dickie lives on a dilapidated houseboat, drives a decrepit DeLorean, and owns a failing bar. What else could go wrong in his life? Enter ex-wife, Rae Nell, with another of her get-rich-quick schemes, and we watch as his life goes from bad to nightmare.

Mike Faricy has done it again - written a witty romp about a down-and-out guy who makes the absolute worst decisions possible. I always love his characters - flawed but loveable, ditzy and without a clue, or evil and stupid. He does a wonderful job of describing his characters, scenes, and keeps the story going without a lot of extra detail.

A fun read - fast-paced and entertaining. The book could definitely use a good editor, but the story is great.
