I was gifted on e-copy in exchange for my honest review.

This is one, of several, Dev Haskell novels. Dev is a private investigator that has a way with the ladies and getting into crazy situations. He is a guy you will either love, or love to hate. In this novel, he is hired to watch over a Roller Derby team, but mainly the star, Harlotte Davidson. She has received several strange, threatening, gifts. While trying to put a finger on who could be doing this, Dev finds himself becoming the suspect

Bombshell (A Dev Haskell Novel) by Mike Faricy
Dev Haskell, the PI with a passion for alcohol, sleeping in and sleeping around. He must be the world's luckiest son of a gun ever. He manages to solve his cases by sheer dumb luck and by being beaten up, repeatedly .
His love life, mostly one night stands usually lands him into trouble. His alcohol use usually leaves him late for appointments and I keep figuring that the police should know by now that he is actually a good guy and simply leave him be

Bombshell by Mike Faricy

This is the second book I have read by this author. Both of the books are humorous mysteries to a T. I love both the books by this author. They are hilarious and the character Dev never ceases to amaze me with his wrong place at the wrong time. I love Dev and the author Mike did another wonderful job delivering another hit!! I just adore his detective books. Devlin Haskel is a man with a great heart that has trouble wit

I was given a copy of this book by the author in return for an honest review.

Ever since I was introduced to Dev Haskell, P.I. in Mike Faricy's book Russian Roulette, I have loved these stories!

Dev Haskell is a P.I. with a roving eye for the ladies. He is suave and charming, but tends to find himself in some unusual situations. And in this book, there is no exception!

I love these books because, not only are they exceedingly well written, they are filled with action and adventure. R
I can honestly say that Dev is one of my absolute favorite fictional private investigators. He’s just your average, typical male with all the bells and whistles eternal bachelorhood brings. What I enjoy most about reading Dev Haskell novels, is that the author doesn’t deviate from Dev’s character, and his continuous pattern of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, so you know what to expect when you meet up with him in the next book. His behavior - which often invokes a good measure of eye ...more

I received a copy of BOMBSHELL from Mike Faricy as a gift (lucky me!), so I wanted to take a moment to share my thoughts on the story to help others decide if it’s the right book for them.

BOMBSHELL is a super fun little mystery. It was cold and gray out, yesterday, so I was attracted to his book’s vibrant cover in my kindle library, and the idea that Mr. Faricy’s story would brighten up my afternoon. It definitely did. (Time to read: about 2 hours)

The story reads like a sit-com; fast-p
The book opens with Dev at a hip new club with his girl of the week. While he's their he meets "Spanky" a roller derby babe. After talking she offers him a job to guard the girls during the bout because a stalker's on the loose.

Dev takes the job more to be near the girls then to be on the lookout for a stalker. The stalker is more crazy then dangerous, leaving fingers taped to Harlotte Davidson's locker. However, Dev gets more then he bargained for when he ends up in jail after a misunderstand

This is the first book I've read by Mike Faricy and I enjoyed it a lot. I like reading mysteries with PIs, which are part of a series.

When the story begins, Dev Haskell has just taken his date to a bar, only to watch her leave with a suave French guy. There he meets Justine (aka Spankie) who is a player in a roller derby league.

The next day, while trying to find some enthusiasm to do some background checks for a client, Justine calls Dev and offers him a job as security for Harlotte Davidson, t
I accepted a free copy of this book to read and am happy to give an honest review.

Mike Faricy has created another fun-filled romp with Detective Dev Haskell, a legend in his own mind. This time, Dev meets up with a roller derby cutie who is looking for security for a visiting team’s star attraction, who is being stalked by a nutcase who sends severed fingers. Of course, mayhem ensues wherever Dev appears, and he ends up bloodied, bruised, and in jail once again.

This is a fast-paced fun and wacky
I recieved this book fro. the author to give an honest review.
I love reading the adventures of P.I. detective Dev Haskel and was glad I got to read a second book with him in it. Dev is a real hoot and a lady charmer, who always seems to find himself in trouble or at least trouble seems to find him.
Dev has a thing for the ladies, and his charming ways has him in the crossfire with the women roller derby team.
Dev gets hired by a roller derby team, to pretty much offer protection and to investigat
Bombshell by Mike Faricy follows the ‘misadventures’ of a PI Devlin Haskell. It seems that he is always at the wrong place at the wrong time. This time he finds himself amidst a roller derby scandal, where again that poor unfortunate thing is framed. Just when he thinks he’s out of one mess he’s faced with another. He needs to put his detective skills together and prove that he is innocent and maybe just stumble on to the right culprit.
I love the Dev Haskell novels because they are just really

Having read and reviewed previous works of Mike Faricy, I jumped at the chance to review Bombshell. It was absolutely delightful. His books are action-packed and offer the reader a tantalizing ride full of mystery. With words in the book blurb like "crazy babe-magnet" PI and "gorgeous English roller derby stars", you just know you are in for a wild ride and Bombshell doesn't disappoint.

Mike's books are well-written with great stories and loads of adventure that will keep you spell-bound and tur
I made it to the beginning of chapter 25 before I just couldn't stand it anymore. It's not worth reading. Obviously intended for men who find porn and casual sex interesting. And it's really poorly written.
Not a terrible plot (predictable, but not terrible), but REALLY terrible writing. Grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors made this really hard to finish.
This was a fun quick read your typical broke PI with a love hate relationship with a police detective - with a Hugh sexist streak.
