    One thought on “You Get What You Pay For”

    1. Like many things in life, I am reading this series of three “detective” novels backwards. I began with the excellent Foreign Exchange. Although it did make a decent standalone novel, there were several hooks back into this novel and its still-unread predecessor.You Get What You Pay For is fairly straight-ahead American Mystery Fiction. There is a PI; there is his mentor/partner and a rich ensemble of supporting villains, corrupt politicians, friends, and lovers. Because it’s set in New Yor [...]

    2. having tried 'a tony cassella mystery' as this one was subtitled, i feel that i don't have to read another one. the book was interesting, then banal, then incredible, but i liked the character of the dog, mario cuomo, who deserved better treatment than he got. this was a book that i kept in a drawer in the bathroom to read during my 20 minute soaks, with the exception of the final pages which i just wanted to complete, so i can find a better book to read.

    3. I wasn't particularly fond of the style of writing. While the subject was somewhat interesting, there was a lot of language and some explicit content that I could have done without.

    4. This book is a trip to read, politics, extortion and all. The author's style is not easy, but the main character is funny in a Woody Allen way.
