Product description

Product Description

Ting-A-Ling is the Seventh mystery in the highly entertaining Dev Haskell Private Investigator mystery series.

In Hitchcockian fashion, the telephone rings at two in the morning. PI Dev Haskell answers, half-asleep, to a giggling woman named Danielle. It seems she's found his phone number on a bathroom stall. She's called Dev "for a good time," but what she really wants is for him to deliver a simple message to her former business partner.

It's all fun and games (not to mention funny) til someone goes missing. Next thing he knows, our fair but bumbling hero can’t find his client or her business partner, which turns out to be the least of his problems when he finds himself on the hook for murder, and suddenly haunted by a multitude of childhood secrets.

In a bizarre but compelling mixture of suspense, family drama, and offbeat comedy, Dev once again messily balances both sides of the law in a wacky adventure that will keep you on your toes while laughing out loud.

"Faricy is the next Carl Hiaasen." -Crime Scene

I received this book to give an honest review.

What can I say about this book other than if you love a humorous story, with a bit of mystery and P.I. work than you have to read Mike Faricy's book. Now I know this is book 7 as part of the Dev Haskell series, but they DO NOT have to be read in order. You get a new case with each book, and have the same main characters. The lawyer, P.I. Dev, the detective, and his go to girl for everything Heidi.
Now with Ting-A-Ling Dev once again finds himself taking on a client who is a woman. Women are his weakness and you would think he would learn after all the problems they have caused him.
This time it is no different, after getting a call in the middle of the night by a woman named Danielle he hears why she needs him and takes it on. Of course something sounds fishy but hey Dev needs money to pay the bills. But little does he know he is being taken on a ride and it is not fun at all. Someone from his childhood past comes back into play and Dev and he finds himself back into the radar of his famous detective friend.

There is the action, mystery surrounding Danielle and why she needs Dev all rolled up into a perfect read. If you are looking for something that will have you shaking your head at the main character for his actions but at the same time laughing then get your hands on Ting-A-Ling.

The best Dev Haskell book yet, and he is at his sleazy best in this mystery. The book is loaded with twists and turns, and the final assault on Dev is chilling, so to speak. I love this series, the snappy chatter, the bottom feeders of the city, and of course, the ultimate gumshoe, Dev himself. Another Faricy that comes highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ting-a-Ling is Bor-Ing 31 August 2015
By Ramey Paulsson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read a LOT of books. I can usually find something that I like about each book I read. Perhaps this book was not to my liking because I did not start with Book One in the series. The character was less than one dimensional if that is even possible. I had NO idea what drove him beyond the fact that he seemed to expect sex everywhere, yet never delivered a single bit of ANYTHING resembling humanity. I had a difficult time not only reading, but finishing this book because it was so...useless. There may have been one or two sentences in the book that I found a tad interesting, but they truly escape me at this moment and even the title was insipid once I read a bit of the book.

Normally I do not like to be negative about an author, because I know that everyone has their own idea about what makes a good book. I also know that being an author might sound fun, fulfilling and a great way to make money in one's spare time, but it is NOT. The main ingredient for ANY good book is to write, flesh out each character and remain true to the storyline. This book literally put me to sleep, in fact it made me think about false teeth resting in a cup of water by a person's bed and I have no idea WHY (and no, I do not have false teeth).To those who enjoy this series I say, "I am glad you enjoy it." However, I cannot in good conscience say that I found this book even a tiny bit interesting. It was one cliché after another and I actually wound up hoping Dev would be killed off at the end. THAT would have made me feel justice had been served.

Some series that run with similar plot lines from entry to entry become stale over time; this one does not. The standard Dev Haskell plot line appears here again and the rollercoaster hasn't stopped. Dev must have a "Kick Me" tattoo on his forehead that only women can see. Again in Ting-A-Ling Dev is approached by a hottie with a problem and despite his questionable hygiene and perpetual hangover he manages to bed this one too. The real fun begins. when said hottie's hidden agenda plays out and Dev ends up in a jackpot with the cops. Helped by his attorney sidekick. Louie, who sleeps in his clothes and wears yesterdays lunch on his tie, and his FWB gal pal Heidi, he some how manages to unravel the mess before he ends up with a permanent view from a cell or taking a nice long dirt nap. This series is funny and crass, sprinkled with suspense and outrage and is populated by people you may have had either the pleasure or displeasure of knowing. The characters are real, the dialogue is snappy, each story pulls you in and flows easily from beginning to end without any flat spots. This is not serious stuff, but it is serious fun.
5.0 out of 5 stars Another great Dev Haskell mystery 4 January 2015

I love the 'Dev Haskell' series. Ting-A-Ling was full of misadventure and some ever present bad luck for Dev. The storyline was great. I liked how the story played out. The characters, as always, are great. I love this series and the fact that it can be read in any order. I look forward to reading more of Dev's adventures. Mike Faricy wrote another great addition to this series. A great add to your tbr list. Recommended read.
5.0 out of 5 stars Dev Haskell and his ever ringing phone. 16 June 2016
By Pat Banks - Published on

I promised a review for a free download. Well seeing as I'd read most of the Dev Haskell books, that was a no brainer. Dev reminds me
of the P.I.s in the oldtime movies. He maybe a womanizer but we get the innuendo without the nitty gritty. Kind of like the movies where "they kissed and then" ... fade black.I like using my imagination, but the imagery Mr. Faricy conjures up is so much more edifying. The humor is also great, it's nice to read a gory murder and still be able to laugh. Looking forward to Dev Haskell's next adventure, and the ever patient Heidi and his friend at the DMV.

5.0 out of 5 stars It just keeps getting better - and it was great to start with 28 March 2014

I sort of miss Dev in between Mike Faricy's book releases -- so I was delighted when Case 7 was published. Dev does not disappoint - he is a cute and sleazy as ever - solving crimes, stumbling into evidence, and sparring with his Nemesis. Detective Manning. And of course, his food spotted, sloppy attorney, which whom he shares an office - note: the attorney's desk is a picnic table! - makes his appearance. I think this may be Faricy's best. There is depth to this fast paced book of twists, turns, and tumultuous laughter. Always good - never disappointing. Thanks, Mike -- now get back to work - I'm in withdraw for Case 8.
