A guardian angel that is a monk from the dark ages is my favorite character in this original novel. He is a lascivious drunkard who may or may not want to help the main character Bob Roosevelt. This novel made me laugh out loud several times! This is a story of a middle aged detective trying to find peace in his life. Unfortunately, he seems to have a knack for finding dead bodies.
It is a nice change to have a main character who is not young, gorgeous, and vacuous. I could see myself sitting down with Bob Roosevelt, having a beer, and discussing the meaning of life. The plot of this murder mystery is engaging and clever. I will continue to read the rest of author Robert Swisher's books.
