The Future Group is the city’s biggest and most lucrative company even though no one really knows what it is they do. Michael Duckett has worked there for four years and he still has no clue. All he knows is that he hates his meaningless job and all the people in it. But it pays the bills. Bills that have been stacking up since his roommate and best friend Stephanie Dyer d ...more

The best thing I can say is I am looking forward to the next Duckett & Dyer book. I seem to have been on a bit of an absurdist/multiverse run and this has held it's own against strong competition. The characters have all grown during the story and the growth doesn't seem forced. Things happen and people change. I also like that Michael and Steph are not being forced to be together romantically. Overall a very good book. ...more

When I finished the first book in this series, I thought I had a pretty good idea of the tone and voice GM Nair was going for. But oh my god, it gets WEIRDER.

There's still a lot of emphasis on the multi-verse and it's ongoing struggles, although the majority of the plot is spent in the current world without a lot of universe hopping. But it makes up for that with a lot of other weirdness. You've got a dude wearing an octopus on his head, a woman in her 70s wielding a grappling hook, and a world

I'm going through my list for Top 20 for 2020 and apparently this didn't get published. Now that I've fixed that:

If you haven't read Dicks for Hire, I highly recommend reading it first. While this could, I suppose, be read as a standalone... For the most enjoyment read book one so you have a solid understanding the friendship between Steph and Michael and more importantly the mind-boggling multiverse aspects of the story. Besides, who wouldn't want more of this dynamic duo?

Steph is just as delig

There might be some slight spoilers for Duckett and Dyer: Dicks for Hire in this review. Honestly, the books are so deliciously bizarre that you wouldn’t believe me if I gave you a play-by-play, although I’ll refrain.

Duckett and Dyer: The One-Hundred Percent Solution picks up pretty much right after the events of book one. After hopping through multiple universes, each one weirder than the last, life has returned to semi-normalcy for both Michael Duckett and Stephanie Dyer. Stephanie is attempt

G.M. Nair has blessed us with Duckett and Dyer: The One-Hundred Percent Solution, the second in a series that features Michael Duckett and Stephanie Dyer, two private investigators who have a habit of finding trouble, no matter where they go.

This story takes off a few months after the events of the last book end. After the pair's last hijinx-filled adventure, there were hints that something else was at play. The author does not disappoint by launching our heroes right back into the thick of thin

In this excellent second entry in the Duckett and Dyer series, Michael and Stephanie are seemingly settling back into their routines after their mind-bending adventures of the first book, but nothing is ever simple for these two. When Michael is summarily dismissed from his numbingly boring job as a corporate drone, he and his partner in detection quickly uncover a massive conspiracy that threatens the existence of the entire world. The narrative jumps around a bit in time which is an effective ...more

I read the previous book in the series on a whim and loved the crap out of it. So you shouldn't be surprised I snagged a copy of this the moment it was released, and I do not regret my decision. Let me put it this way- I finished the book in a single sitting because I outright refused to put it down. That's how good it is.

Continuing on with the madness set up in the first book, the sequel amps it up, adding new layers of intrigue to the over-arching plot and setting up future threads even when t

I'm the kind of person who likes physical books, but this was so good that I made the jump to digital just so I could read it right away. One-Hundred Percent Solution keeps up the pace set by Dicks For Hire and is just as great as the first book. It was amazing to see how Michael and Stephanie's relationship had grown since the last book and continues to develop in this one. The plot was an insane roller coaster that manages to be hilarious, insane, but endearing all at once. If there's one down ...more

Just Dyer Already!

If you are reading this review stop already and get the book. This is book 2 for the uninitiated and won't make much sense if you gave not read the first. Stephanie steps up to the plate swinging away in this book and its nothing but homeruns.

Things you might might find in this book: Grape slushies, Octopus headgear, more grappling hooks, mutated and brainwashed corporate ladder climbing hordes, urban snowflakes in medieval armor, Evel Knieval like stunts and secret codes for

I have never come across a concept like the Duckett & Dyer books. At times irreverent, a bit on the campy side, and focused on a friendship between two completely disparate individuals, both books that exist (so far?! She said hoping for more?!) in this series absolutely captured my heart. I can't decide if it's Michael's neurotic self or Stephanie's use of comedy to cover up her very personal hurt, but I cannot get enough of Duckett & Dyer!! ...more
