Free download Losers Live Longer (Hard Case Crime) review Losers Live Longer (Hard Case Crime) ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB DEATH PROWLS THE STREETS BETWEEN C D The death of legendary private eye George Rowell looked like an accident but sea. It is September 2008 and Payton Sherwood is barely hanging on as a detective in the East Village It has been a decade since he debuted in the novel East of A and the world has since moved on without him New York City is becoming gentrified Payton cannot afford a cell phone and his only connection to the internet is dial upHe is surprised when George Rowely a legendary retired PI asks him to help in a case When George shows up dead in front of his office half an hour later the victim of an apparent car accident Payton finds himself thrust into the center of a mystery involving Hollywood celebrities a child prostitution ring in Ukraine and a manhunt for the nation s most well known scam artistLosers Live Longer is a fast easy beach read but it is best not to think about it too much It suffers from than one fatal flawThere is an annoying transparency in its ripped from the headlines characters This includes a socialite who is famous for being famous ala Paris Hilton There is a banker who ripped off billions from A list celebrities in a ponzi scheme Bernie MadoffPayton lacks any supporting cast that makes him a memorable anti hero While I acknowledge the tough guy loner is an accepted trope of the genre he fits the bill a little too perfectly He has no family he has no network of informants on the police force or the criminal underworld His professional peers dismiss him He only has one friend and her purpose to the story seems to be only to provide him with high speed internetThe plot relies on at least three very implausible coincidences Also since Payton lacks the tools or connections to be a good investigator it seems overly fortuitous that every scene in the story yields either a Very Useful Clue or a Dead Body He tramples over crime scenes indiscriminately and the police are never anywhere to be seen

Free download Losers Live Longer (Hard Case Crime) review Losers Live Longer (Hard Case Crime) ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Investment scam artist a drug addicted reality TV star and the bewitching beauty whose appearance set it all in moti. Having finished reading several of Donald Westlake s comic crime series featuring John Dortmunder the bad luck loser among thieves was I ready for a private eye loser Well ready or not Atwood s Payton Sherwood was a winner Sherwood is an underemployed private eye who in the investigation of the death of an elderly famous PI endures beatings verbal abuse attempts on his life and unceasing doubts about his abilities But Sherwood like Dortmunder is persistent At one near fatal point in his life Sherwood says I hung on It s what I do Sorta like you and me well me anyway rather than the James Bond super hero Atwood s writing is crisp and appropriate for the characters and locales he portrays including his carefully chosen incomplete sentences His freuent similies are creative such as I was trying to gather my wits but it was like reconstructing a blown apart dandelion That is writing well worth reading And the loser Sherwood what about him well he comes out on top at the end My hope is that Russell Atwood is busy writing his third Sherwood novel now

Free download Losers Live Longer (Hard Case Crime) review Losers Live Longer (Hard Case Crime) ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Rching for the truth behind it will put down and out East Village detective Payton Sherwood on the trail of a runaway. Losers Live Longer is one of two full length novels Atwood has written about NYC private eye Payton Sherwood This is not a Mike Hammer type private eye or even a Phillip Marlowe type With his wisecracking humor and his all too mortal fighting ability Sherwood is like a modernized version of Ed Noon if he could be compared to anyone In this book Sherwood manages to stumble out of his apartmentoffice building without shoes or socks only to see his buddyclient Owl has been hit by a car Not one to be too suspicious Sherwood searches the body as the sirens approach Thinking someone like a retro skateboarder might have observed him Sherwood takes off over trash and decay and things sticky and disgusting on the New York sidewalks in his bare feet It is uite amusing as he searches in vain for a pair of shoes to don finally finding a pair in the trash From there Sherwood literally stumbles onto one clue after another to wrap up a mystery On the way he is accosted by Russian mobsters struck on the head with a briefcase dodging bullets about the East River and variously beat up and made a complete fool ofThe plot meanders uite a bit and by the end the plot is a little too disjointed to be compelling It may just be that the book is way too long for what it tries to doThere are a lot of positive things about Atwood s writing including his inane humorous descriptions of people and places This is a detective who makes fun of himself and doesn t take himself too seriously Indeed Sherwood is about as down on his luck as one could possibly be having only four paying clients in the past year and having already sold most of his possessions on Ebay Sherwood thinks that someone out there was a billable client and he is going to stumble on that person But Sherwood is so sure no one will drop by that he is lounging around barefoot drinking coffee and when the buzzer rings he figures it was just some drunk leaning against the doorframe and getting his bearings When his buddy the older detective stops by Owl Sherwood describes him as ancient and not too steady on his pins He was a geezer who could ve used a registered nurse And when he sees a body in the street Sherwood thinks of the white haired scalp ruptured and a skull shard sticking out Not to mention the emission of brain matter As he walks down a corridor he thinks of it as an anonymous corridor about as lively as a sun shrunken condom When Sherwood gets battered he says he was a perfect pinball especially as his head connects with the dresser s edge When Sherwood sees a gorgeous woman he thinks there is something irrestible about her something that made you think of Pavlov and dogs and bells of maybe moths and flames But not everyone in Sherwood s world is amazing Some are dumpy with copper orange hair and harleuin glassesIt is a uick pleasant read for detective fiction with a lot of humour in it but although all the ingredients are here it s like having a sugar free cake for dessert just not fully satisfying
