This book is like a flashback to the swinging 1960s; groovy clothes, hair, and slang lingo included. Add some interesting detective stories accompanied by great art work and you have this book. Honey West is a tough, sexy and funny detective with an ocelot pet named Bruce. This book is highly recommended for people who like saucy detective with a 1960's flare.
