“Ramon Ramon is a riot. Totally paranoid, gangsta detective. Been reading it with my girlfriend on study breaks and it always gives us a good laugh. Not usually into fiction, but i've been giving this a shot as recommended. With all the heaviness this is relief in its lightness. Go get em Ramon.”

The Corsican Dove (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:37PM
Description: Private Eye Ramone Ramone is approached one night by a mysterious woman offering him $10,000 to find a rare book. It seems her son has joined a cult and offered its guru a family heirloom: an original edition of The Corsican Dove. After accepting the case, Ramone discovers that the book is worth less than a carton of cigarettes. With the murders of five interested parties and death threats received by Ramone and his drug-dealing partner, he learns that there are some heavy hitters out there including his own clients who have no intention of letting Ramone get his hands on The Corsican Dove. How can a $7.00 book be work dying for?
