Product description

Product Description

Bite Me is the THIRD masterfully bizarre mystery in the Dev Haskell Series.

"What an absolute delight. I enjoyed myself from hilarious the first chapter to the spine tingling ending ... Faricy is the next Carl Hiaasen." -Crime Scene

Wise-cracking, back-slapping, sideways-thinking Private Investigator Dev Haskell is in the middle of dissipating a lover's quarrel with his newest gorgeous knife-wielding female conquest when he gets a call. Members of KRAZ, a radio station that considers itself "the voice of America's future," need protection from an apparent death threat. A cursory investigation leads Dev to the conclusion he's just landed his dream job: providing security for people who don't actually need it. But alas, the dream ends the moment someone shoots at his clients in broad daylight.

Things quickly fly out of control when Dev suddenly finds himself under the police microscope, literally tied up in a relationship with an unpredictable woman, and dodging a growing pile of bodies that all seem to be linked to him.

"Faricy is America's hottest new mystery writer." -The Dirty Lowdown

"Even now I can't believe the way this guy can weave a tale. Just when things were about to get too grim there's a laugh out loud scene that kept me turning the pages. Run, don't walk, to pick up your copy of Bite Me." -The Irish Gazette

About the Author

Mike Faricy writes suspenseful crime tales populated by unforgetable whacky characters. His books are filled with the sort of oddballs and flakes we're all curious about but wisely prefer to keep at a distance. They won't be saving the world from terriorism, international bank conspiracies or government coups. The situations they find themselves in are due to their own bad decisions, but then bad decisions make for interesting reading. Mike lives with his wife in St. Paul, Minnesota and Dublin, Ireland.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bad book, terrible ending 15 July 2013
By Wanda Peters - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book really has almost no redeeming features. It starts out with the lead character (can't bring myself to call him a hero) being set up on charges of kidnapping, rape and murder. You quickly find out that this character is so dumb that if stupidity was a crime he would get life. You keep reading expecting at some point that he will do something bordering on intelligent behavior. That expectation is never met. Although it is no secret as to who is responsible for setting him up, you do expect that at some point you will find out why. Again your expectations will not be met.
If you can stand to finish this book you will be disappointed with the ending.
I cannot recommend this book to any audience.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 16 August 2013
By Tom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Having read other Mike Faricy novels in this series, I was looking forward to a good read. However, this is FAR from the best of the series. Seems like the author was too busy to bother showing up. Plot was poor, and Dev Haskell has become so inept and almost unbelievable as a character that its a REAL stretch of the imagination to see him as anything but a drunken buffoon. It's silly and trite and NOT well put together. The end is a relief when it arrives except that Mike seems to think there was no need to write an ending that told where the various characters ended up. Not sure that I'll bother to read any more of this series. I would probably have given this one -0- stars if it was an available option.

1.0 out of 5 stars It Was Stupid 31 January 2014
By B. Radisavljevic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I stopped reading after the first few chapters when it became evident there was no real point to the book and that the characters were largely immoral. To me, humor and slapstick ridicule are not equal. I like humor to be kind, not unkind. I expect to see at least one character I can like who does not need his or her mouth washed out with soap. I also like characters and a plot that are somewhat believable. This book had neither. I will delete the book from my Kindle and spend my time reading something more worthy of the time spent.

1.0 out of 5 stars Glad this was free. 14 July 2013
By Cynthia Jokela - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm not finished with this book yet, but the misogyny of the main character is driving me batty. Sure, it might just be meant to be a character flaw, but typically the author is careful to unfold the plot from another character's point-of-view so that we know it's not the author's personal opinion. So, either the main character or the author (or both) really doesn't like androgynous women (or, as they are referred to, "dykes"), overweight businesswoman, and attractive, sexy women(they are either idiots or murderous schemers). I will probably finish the book, but won't be reading another of his.

Okay, finished it. The misogyny got worse as the book went on. Extremely offensive. The editing was sloppy as well, especially during the second half of the text. The ending was abrupt and confusing for a few seconds until I finally got that the book had ended--with little fanfare, sort of an "Okay, I'm done writing this--bored now!" abruptness. Changed from 2 stars to 1 star.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother 6 July 2013
By avidreader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm going to have to be more careful about screening these reviews. I saw all those stars and I was really eager to read this book. I was so wrong.
I found this character to have no character. He was a sarcastic, womanizing, lying drunk. Were we supposed to like him? I guess I'm one of those people who wants to at least kind of like the main character. Unless he is clearly an evil type of main character. He was also a really bad PI.
So where were the laugh out loud funny parts? The "humor" was just more like nasty sarcasm to me. The story just went on and on and I struggled to finish it. I only finish a bad book because I have a thing about leaving a book unfinished.
I was actually hoping that he would go to prison. If this is the author's main character in a series of books, count me out.
Apparently the author has a lot of fans. I hope they are not all relatives. Sorry.
