Lucky Bastard characters ☆ 7 Gans the unsavory fact remains luck is the most powerful addictive and dangerous drug of them all And no amount of cappuccinos Lucky Charms or apple fritters can sweeten the notion that Nick might be exactly what his father once claimed as ambitious as a fart That is until Tuesday Knight the curvy brunette who also happens to be the mayor’s daughter approaches Nick with an irresistible offer 100000 to retrieve her father’s stolen luck Could this high stakes deal let Nick do right. Of all the places I have travelled in the world which isn t a lot actually my favorite city to visit is San Francisco I know what you are probably thinking You haven t been to Paris yet or But New York City is the hub of western civilization or Gary Indiana is really nice this time of year And you d probably be right I haven t been to Paris yet New York City probably IS the hub of western civilization and Gary Indiana is from what I ve heard really nice this time of year but I left my heart in San Francisco Okay no I didn t but it s always hip to work in a Frank Sinatra song title into one of my reviews Or is that Tony Bennet Whatever I have been to San Fran three times and my wife and I are planning another trip in August her first time and I have fallen in love with it every time The Bay Area the Golden Gate Bridge Ghirardelli Chocolates Alcatraz Island the crazy roads the friendly people the beautiful weather my list could go on and on Author SG Browne also lives in San Francisco He writes detective novels set in San Francisco His latest Lucky Bastard is harmless and cute Not exactly two words I like using when describing detective novels His detective is called Nick Monday He s kind of a slacker Okay the truth is he s a lazy bum and an unlikeable one at that He is also a luck poacher What s a luck poacher Apparently a select few people throughout history are born with the ability to capture people s luck good or bad bottle it and sell it at ridiculous prices on a black market I won t go into the rather disgusting way in which luck is captured and extracted in bottle form I ll leave that for Browne to tell you In any case Monday has begun to have second thoughts about his lifestyle as a luck poacher It has left him friendless and alone and he has begun to have these weird feelings that make him feel uncomfortable He thinks it may be guilt but usually one has to have a conscience to feel that right There s also the fact that a beautiful woman has hired him to find and hurt the man who stole her father s luck The problem is that her father is the mayor of San Francisco and the man who stole his luck is Monday On top of that a local kingpin of a Chinatown mafia wants Monday to score him a vial of Pure the rarest form of good luck This is the kind of luck that wins people lotteries helps them score with gorgeous women and gets them elected President The problem for Monday is that the only person in the entire state to possess this luck is a ten year old kid Ethical dilemma anyone Browne s comedic private eye fantasy is an entertaining read in the Charlaine HarrisCasey Daniels vein It s The Dresden Files minus all the darkness Therein lies the problem for me anyway It s a little too light and bubbly This book is lacking any darkness Apparently the sunniness and warmth of San Francisco has gone to Browne s head Maybe he should try living in New York City for awhile just to get some of that darkness back I won t lie Lucky Bastard is pretty funny although while at times Browne s humor is clever much of it also comes across as sophomoric and base Browne is basically a poor man s Christopher Moore If you like the light hearted fantasy fiction of HarrisDanielsMoore you will probably like Browne

Lucky Bastard characters ☆ 7 Or will kowtowing to another greedmonger’s demands simply fund Nick’s addiction to corporate coffee bars while his morality drains down the toilet Before he downs his next mocha Nick finds himself at the mercy of a Chinese mafia kingpin and with no choice but to scour the city for the purest kind of luck a hunt titillating than softcore porn All he has to do to stay ahead of the game is remember that you can’t take something from someone without eventually paying like hell for i. 45 stars Nick Monday is a San Francisco PI but that s just a front for his real job poaching someone s luck and selling it to the highest bidder He was born with the rare ability to steal luck bad or good through a simple handshake and although it s an underground market and people are beginning to believe the stories about luck poachers After a few slow months Nick s business suddenly picks up all in one day he gets clients wanting him to investigate who stole another s luck the Chinatown kingpin is demanding that Nick poach good luck for him and new luck poachers seem to be appearing in town for no apparent reasonThis was such a fun read It was both funny and a noir mystery at the same time Nick was such a likable main character with a great voice for narrating beginning on the first page I loved the self depricating humor and all of his little takes on how luck works or how the world in general works I was on his side from the start even though as Nick admits he doesn t always have everyone s best interests at heart The majority of the book takes place in a single day chronicling what has to be the worst day of his life death threats kidnappings offers from numerous shady figures and through it all Nick keeps his sense of humor and proves to be uite the hero to root for He s also surrounded by a very colorful cast and it was so fun to see how much personality everyone had no matter how briefly they were shownThe story itself was full of twists and turns keeping me glued to the page because I couldn t wait to find out what would happen next or what kept certain characters motivated The story didn t move in the expected linear fashion and the author dangled just enough information to get me curious before throwing in an unforeseen plot curveball I loved how creative it all was and the fact that the main story was set here in the real world with just a hint of underlying paranormal behavior ie the ability to poach luck that enhanced the story instead of carrying the story It made for an interesting concept that kept the story s unpredictability even intriguingWhile this is not for those looking for a hard gritty mystery it s a novel I recommend for anyone wanting an entertaining mysterious romp In this book it s not so much the who what where and why that you re reading to find out it s about the story along the way and how everything turns out the way it does Closest comparison I can think of offhand would b some of Christopher Moore s novels I m glad I discovered this author and am looking forward to picking up of his work
