Aaron and his friend Buddy to follow a man named Tankersly for the next few days, who's been harassing them, and report back so that he wouldn't interfere in their business. Aaron looks like and claims to be a dead celebrity is not lost on Bubba.ghkdg.co.vu/the-way-eye-see-it.php
He sets one of his snitches, Rodent, to look into Tankersly and begins following the man. When he decides to check out the man's room and loses him at the building the fellow's been watching, things go downhill fast. Tankersly is found murdered in his room, shot three times in the chest, and Rodent is found in the same condition, Bubba finds himself in a lot of trouble.
His friend on the force, Steve Romero, doesn't believe him guilty of the crimes. Not so his boss. Bubba's fingerprints are all over the room after all. And his clients suddenly checked out of their hotel and disappeared.
Things get complicated when a half pint woman, one Felitia Quattlebaum charges into his room accusing him of murdering her reporter. A second reporter, Bambi Gamble, who looks as ot as her name suggest, tries to seduce information out of him. Bubba needs to find the mysterious Mr. Aaron and Buddy and clear his name. Quite enjoyed this one. I don't know if it helped or I've read a lot of Steve Brewer's books but never any of the Bubba Mabry stories, so I decided I needed to go back and see what all the shouting was about.
Lonely Street is terrific fun. I don't know if it helped or hurt that I know Steve and as a result I could see and hear him say every line out of Bubba's mouth. But I can't unknow him so that mystery will remain. Steve says he writes 'books about crooks' and while that's true, it sells him a little bit short.
Lonely Street (Bubba Mabry, book 1) by Steve Brewer
Steve is a master at writing a fast-paced, funny, twisty, and satisfying P. I highly recommend Lonely Street, along with everything else Steve has written. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. I've never been a big fan of the crime mystery genre.
Heck, I've never been a big fan of the mystery genre as a whole. But, Steve Brewer moved into our northern California community several years ago, and I discovered him through his weekly newspaper column. His columns are the meat of his book "Trophy Husband: A Survival Guide to Working at Home. After meeting him a couple of times, and learning that his first Bubba Mabry book had been made into a movie, I read this book, the first in the Bubba Mabry series. Bubba is a fun protagonist. He's gullible, seldom the sharpest tool in the shed, and he gets beat up regularly. He's sort of an antithesis of the remarkably perceptive, borderline-superhero private eye to which we're accustomed.
Still, despite his lapses of self-discipline, he's doggedly determined.
I identify with Bubba a lot. Maybe I should be concerned. I soon devoured the entire Bubba Mabry series. The title should be at least 4 characters long.
