In the pie shop ...

I'm a sucker for a good comic, crime caper - oddball characters, screwball plot, and an electric pace, and I'm as happy as a glutton in a pie shop. I've just started Anthony Bruno's, Devil's Food, about two officers from the New Jersey Parole Violaters Search Unit and their attempt to recapture a savvy embezzeler who's skipped bail and headed for Florida, leaving a lot of unhappy people in her wake. I had a grin on my face for the entire first two chapters. Great characterisation, snappy dialogue and madcap action. If that keeps up until the end of the story, I'm going to very full of pie. Next slice, please!
