I'm half way through it but this book is a trip. Its has a typical British sense of humor, very off the wall. Its about a detective who has a history of working on cases that take him to the darkest sexual underbellies of America. He is described as a '**** Magnet' because he has nothing but bad luck. He gets commissioned by the US Chief of Staff to find 'the other Constitution'. The journey takes him all over the US.
There aren't a lot of books that make me laugh out loud but i've been laughing like a crazy person alone in my house sandwiched between moments that make me shake my head and squirm in my seat. Again, typical British sense of humor.
Just finished this book. Yep, its pretty off the wall all the way although it loses some of its momentum toward the end. This book is not for the faint hearted or those who get offended easily. Its a bit vulgar and crass in its delivery but at the same time very humorous.
