    • Book Info: Genre: Comedic mysteryReading Level: Adult Recommended for: Anyone who likes to laughTrigger Warnings: Excessive laughter? You know, if you have a weak bladder or something you might want to be careful.My Thoughts: This book was hilarious. Murph was a wonderfully fun character, full of wisdom and wisecracks and strange, random thoughts that cause startled outbursts of laughter. This review will consist to a huge degree of quotes from the book, which I think will do a much better job o [...]


    • There are precious few funny books out there - this is one. Smart, literate, with a big heart. Buy this book. Strike a blow for big yuks.


    • Murph’s back, and this time the delightfully idiosyncratic Denver cabbie is on a mission.Brendan Murphy begins his shift determined to stick to his primary rule of cab driving – never get involved in the lives of your passengers. His monumental failure to observe his own dictum begins when he picks up a tipsy young woman in a Roaring Twenties flapper costume at her Capitol Hill apartment for a ride to a screening of “The Great Gatsby” at the Mile High Film Festival. When Murph tries to e [...]



    • I love this author. Murph, Gary Reilly's protagonist , is quirky, hilarious and smart. I have laughed my way through all of his books. As much as I love this series, I recognize it may not be for everyone. It is really all about the voice. You have to fall in love with the wanderings of Murph's eclectic mind. If you are looking for a straight plot driven novel this may not be for you. But if you can imagine a concatenation of The Big Lebowski, the TV series Taxi and a Robin Williams monologue yo [...]


    • This is a local Denver story by a Denver writer. I suspect the main character is a type not uncommon in the region.

I've never lived in Denver but have been there enough to appreciate the lcoal vibe and references. This book has the feel of a manuscript that a friend might have given you to read. I don't mean that i [...]


    • I was really thankful to win this in a member giveaway. I started reading it when it arrived in my mailbox and I couldn't put it down. The author writes with a clever wit and is very enjoyable. I liked it even more because I have lived in both Denver and California, so it was interesting knowing the places the writer was referencing. My favorite thing about the book was that the author was constantly referencing books and movies. I do that constantly, so it was fun to be able to relate to the ch [...]




    • Another great story from Mr. Reilly. His plotting and humor are even stronger than in his first novel! Fun reading, great characters!
