This is my first Lawrence Block novel, and I really enjoyed it. It was a light read featuring Chip, assistant to a Nero Wolfe-like detective, Leon Haig. The two men set out to help Tulip Willing, a topless dancer, discover who poisoned her exotic fish. Human murders follow, and all is lost until Haig calls all the suspects together and sorts the crime.
Fast paced, funny dialogue, an easy read. I'll check out more Lawrence Block after this one!
