Summary

Summary

The life of Aaron Tucker -- freelance writer and stay-at-home dad -- is anything but boring. In fact, Aaron manages to find himself in way more danger than your typical mild-mannered Jewish guy. He lands in a murder investigation when a leading conservative politician is found dead in his DC hotel room, discovered by his mistress after her long post-coital shower. She (a former object of Aaron's affection) asks Aaron to find the killer. Aaron doesn't see himself as an investigating genius but he takes the assignment, which doesn't sit well with his family.

Booklist Review

The life of Aaron Tucker--freelance writer and stay-at-home dad--is anything but boring. In fact, Aaron manages to find himself in way more danger than your typical mild-manneredewish guy. In For Whom the Minivan Tolls (2002), he found missing persons, and now he lands in a murder investigation. When a leading conservative politician is found dead in his D.C. hotel room, discovered by his mistress after her long postcoital shower, the guy's ex (a former object of Aaron's affection) asks Aaron to find the killer. Aaron doesn't see himself as any investigating genius--he has his sights set on being a screenwriter--but he's also a pushover, so he takes the assignment, which doesn't sit well with his wife, nor does it make handling his demanding daughter and special-needs son any easier. Quirky, adorable, and downright funny, Aaron is a totally endearing antisleuth. Let's hope he keeps his screenwriting career on hold through a few more adventures. --Mary Frances Wilkens Copyright 2003 Booklist


Library Journal Review

Freelance journalist Aaron Tucker (For Whom the Minivan Rolls) attends his 25th high school reunion on a lark but winds up investigating the murder of a DC politician for a former classmate. The victim, killed in the hotel room of his current mistress, headed an extremist right-wing group and had many enemies. His buxom widow, now inured to his infidelities, receives the police vote as prime suspect. Aaron tries to help out, but his attorney wife receives unwanted attention of her own from a discontented client. Upbeat family misadventures, unrequited writing aspirations, and unlimited suspects make this a treat to read. For fans of humorous mysteries. (c) Copyright 2010.
