SCAMMING THE BIRDMAN by Larry Karp

 

I recently finished up Larry Karp's SCAMMING THE BIRDMAN. I had more fun with this one than his first book THE MUSIC BOX MURDERS (which I liked)-see my review of MBM below. Scamming The Birdman is a caper book. You have no idea how they will pull off the scam until Karp unfolds every little detail in time---which is one of Karp's strength's. Karp in both books never leaves any detail unexplained and doesn't insult your intelligence. Besides being a very funny book with about seven unique characters that go about trying to scam the Birdman, the story has an unexpected twist. The twist gave me a jolt, but didn't detract from the fun of the story. The twist also gives you a taste of  how Karp's more recent book a medical mystery titled FIRST DO NO HARM is written. I was not a big fan of First Do No Harm, but I was able to read the whole book because Karp is a very good story teller. His story telling ability caused me to read his music box mystery books and in them he does not disappoint. Larry Karp is an author worth reading.

Greetings! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are
you using for this site? I'm getting tired of Wordpress because
I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at options
for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point
me in the direction of a good platform.
