Supposedly "hilarious" mystery thriller - OK but nothing terrific

Bad Move - Linwood Barclay

My wife abandoned this as too annoying and I can see why. The narrator is a self-confessed idiot (not the term he uses) and the first part of the book emphasises this fact. The book picks up in the second half where most of the real action takes place regarding murder, blackmail, extortion etc.. in a suburban context.

Reasonably engaging, the book works in the end but readers should be cautious about taking on this series and not expect too much.
