Just about finished. Very good, albeit waaaay too long. Definitely could have used an editor -- there's no reason this needed to be 600 pages long. (If said editor were me, the entire subplot about the brother would have been the first one to go. Also, he sets up back stories and emotions for every random character and bit player. Interesting, well-written, but doesn't add much to the overall plot.)

A murder-mystery set in a Disney-like park. Starts off with a dead furry, and gets weirder from there. Very funny, and gets pretty violent towards the end. The author is a former tv and movie writer and it shows; he's got a great sense of LA and show business, and the book definitely feels like it could easily be a movie one day.

Golda That's what I was thinking - there was definitely too much going on for one book. Cutting the brother subplot would have helped.
