If you like mysteries, you’ll like Lucky Dogs by Jason Krumbine. If you like science fiction, you’ll like Lucky Dogs by Jason Krumbine. Lucky Dogs is both, with a healthy dollop of humor thrown in for good measure.
Alex Cheradon, a 30-year-old private detective with a strange crew of associates, is now working out of Las Vegas. When he’s asked by Peter Perkins to help when a con man scams Perkins out of a priceless family heirloom, Alex and crew have to fight not only gangsters but werewolves, et al.
Krumbine puts more fun, action, and mayhem in a short novel than you’re likely to find in longer works, and he leaves you panting for more. Great dialogue, detailed descriptions, and non-stop giddiness mark this third volume of the Alex Cheradon series. After you’ve read it, I strongly recommend you rush out and get volumes one and two, and keep an eye out for the next one in the series.
Four stars to Krumbine for Lucky Dogs.
