Product description

Product Description

Last Shot is the SIXTH offbeat (and very funny) mystery in the Dev Haskell Private Investigator series.

Dysfunctional PI Dev Haskell receives a request from beautiful, red-headed Desi Quinn to investigate the trumped-up charges that ruined her life and sent her to prison six years ago. Desi's life was destroyed after a brief relationship with upstanding citizen, Man-of-the-Year Gaston Driscoll, who just happened to be her boss. She views Dev as her last hope--her last shot--but the impossibly dangerous scenario she describes makes Dev think the investigation would be out of his league; he politely declines.

As Desi's story slowly unravels, Dev realizes (under a mountain of guilt) that he made a huge mistake. He embarks on a mission to make things right, only to become a killer's next target. An entertaining tale of intrigue, rank ineptitude, and raucously entertaining one night stands, Last Shot is another funny, fast paced, engrossing thriller from Minnesota’s master of the bizarre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much like the late Elmore Leonard, super enjoyable and fascinating 2 March 2016
By Michael Wood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Mike Faricy reminds me a lot of Elmore Leonard. He seems to focus on the people who make up the bottom of social activities- not always because of their own faults and failures- but sometimes because they just got a bad deal. Faricy catches the sad (but funny in a very dark way ) and authentic language of the streets and failed criminal activities, just as Leonard has for so many years.

His protagonist character Dev Haskell, is a private investigator who never seems to get paid, rarely succeeds with women, and, on occasion, gets charged with the crime he is investigating. He's a likable guy, but if I knew him, I probably wouldn't want to walk down the street with him, since his associates often catch a blade or a bullet.

This is a fairly short book at about 160 pages, but the action is nonstop, and the dry black humor continues to unwind with the complex story line. The memes seem to be taken from a Bernie Sanders speech: "the system is rigged, and justice to expensive for an average person " (much less those with a felony conviction or ten).

Great writing, good storylines, and black humor combine into a very readable and enjoya

4.0 out of 5 stars Is it possible? Can it be that Dev is growing up? 21 March 2016
By Wanda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is the perfect anecdote to the blues.
Dev is still a womanizing rascal but he is growing up or I am getting used to him. I think the first option is however the truth of this matter.

The author has taken a massive chance on growing his main character while still his most endearing characteristics. I loved the old Dev. I adore the new one that is a bit more easy to handle around the edges now. He still drinks like a fish objectify all pretty females. Alienate friends but he also now lives with the consequences of his decisions. Well...some of his decisions.

The plot is as fantastical as always and still adhere to logic but it also entertains. What can I say. Get your own copy and decide for yourself if
Dev is growing up.

3.0 out of 5 stars The author is really good, loved the characters 3 November 2014
By SewSewDesign - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I just finished the book. The author is really good, loved the characters, but didn't like the one female's character with the foul mouth. Really? The two flaws I found with the books was one: The author described every setting in detail, restaurant, office, clothing, furniture, etc, (well done, but distracting). Two: the book suddenly ended, every thing being solved almost at once. My opinion only. I would like to write like he does, just leave out the fluff.

5.0 out of 5 stars More, more, more! 3 March 2016
By Samantha Surovec - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I can't get enough of these books! I love the characters. Though there is little in the way of redeeming qualities to any of them you still manage to have sympathy for them. You couldn't create a more perfect antihero than Dev. Each case is as good as the last or better and I look forward to reading every one! I really think these stories would make a great TV show!
The twists and turns, the snarky comments, Dev's "luck" with the ladies, his drinking hobby, and his persistence, luck and determination all make for a 1st class story. Keep up the great work!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another ace from one of our best living comic mystery writers 6 February 2014
By Bill Baker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
We don't have many terrific comic mystery writers - Donald Westlake was one - but Mike Faricy is one of our best - maybe the best we have now. You know what I like about his detective, Dev Haskell? Haskell is one of our own; a friend we probably have, or like ourselves. Stuff just goes wrong sometimes - even most of the time - but in the end, Dev Haskell's got what anyone would want - a love and few bucks to keep life going.
