The Two Gentlemen of Altona

SUMMARY The Two Gentlemen of Altona

The first title in the exciting Playing the Fool series Mischief thou art afootSpecial Agent Ryan Mac McGuinness is having a rough week Not only is he on a new diet but he's also been tasked with keeping Henry Page the world's most irritating witness alive Which is tough when Mac's a breath away from killing the Shakespeare uoting ethically challenged egg obsessed Henry himself Unless killing isn't really what. 35 Dang I HATED this bookIt gave me the most awful donut cravings So I couldn't resist sneaking into a bakery One donut didn't make the trip homeA second one didn't survive me snapping a pic And do I really have to confess that the last two were gone before I finished The Two Gentlemen of Altona GrmblSo the Two Gentlemen of Altona is nothing like the Henry Rock collaborations I’ve read before And you know what In my opinion that’s a good thing In this book there are no tragically damaged characters to unabashedly manipulate you into shedding big emo tears It’s a remarkably lighthearted and amusing ride insteadSpecial agent Mac is a donut loving cranky bald guy He’s also a little chubby So ever since he started a diet the donuts are off limit Hence the cranky part Then there’s his non existing love life but hey at least he’s good at his job That is until he manages to let an important witness to a murder disappear from right underneath his nose Said witness the young and charming con man Henry Page soon discovers that fooling a sugar deprived FBI cop was perhaps not his best idea as he tries to outrun both Mac and the murderer’s hit menThere’s a lot to love about these authors’ promising first book in a brand new series that vaguely reminds me of a MM version of Janet Evanovich’ bestselling Stephanie Plum series It’s fast paced uncomplicated and pretty damn funny Whereas the chemistry between the MCs doesn’t convince me entirely any lack thereof is made up for by their snicker worthy dynamics And I applaud the authors for making Mac bald and giving him a bit of a paunch It’s always a relief when I don’t have to read ongoing twaddle about MCs resembling six packed Ken dolls “I know what I’m not good at”“Let’s start there What aren’t you good at Besides running”Mac opened his mouth “Running”“Yeah You run with your arms kind of flapping”Was this little shit seriously criticizing the way he ran “May I remind you that when you saw me I was running after the guy who’d just tried to kill you”“And maybe you’d’ve caught him if your arms weren’t flapping” If you enjoy solving crimes along with your well developed MCs this book will possibly leave you with an empty stomach though It’s the euivalent of junk food — of a fresh donut with chocolate sprinkles on top — after all The focus is on the banter between the guys resulting in a sadly neglected crime plot The MCs may find themselves in life threatening situations there’s no sense of real danger to really keep you on the edge of your seat It isn’t until the last uarter that the character development turns serious with the first hints of drama kicking in like what you’d expect from Henry Rock It feels like a departure from the preceding cheekier tone and I wonder if it’s partly to blame for the ending that just seems to fizzle outAlso be forewarned that the ending will leave you hanging due to both a cliffhanger and numerous failed attempts at the ‘insertion of tab A into slot B’ due to a persistent case of force majeure The seuel is expected to be published in February 2015 though so luckily it’s not that long a wait
