Book Review: Crazy Joe by A. J. Llewellyn & D. J. Manly

From The Blurb:
Montana Delray, a hot, good-looking New Orleans detective, had it made until his captain found him fooling around with his son at the office Christmas party. Even a gold shield and a medal for valor can’t save him from being busted down and transferred to the last place any cop wants to go—the 77th Precinct. 
Detective Joe Hunter, nicknamed “Crazy Joe” because he has the sixth sense, flounders in a department where everyone has their “idiosyncrasies.” Then Montana Delray walks through the doors of the 77th and turns psychic Joe’s world upside down. 
For the two mismatched detectives, is the 77th Precinct a nightmare or their destiny?



Karen's rating:




Having sex with the bosses son in the copy room at the office Christmas party might not be the best way to further one's career. Who knew? Apparently Dectective Montana Delray of the New Orleans Police Department didn't or at least he didn't know that the hot young man who practically dragged him into the copy room was his captain's son nor did he know that his captain was going to walk in and catch them with their pants down...literally...oopsie, so much for that promising police career.

It was this momentary indiscretion that causes Montana to find himself suddenly an officer of the 77th Precinct. That this precinct is a bit on the bizarre side is a mild understatement. Turns out the best thing that the 77th has going for it is Crazy Joe. He's either crazy or there's some truth to the rumor that he's psychic, but the one thing Montana knows for sure is he's hot, he's gay, he's definitely interested and damned if he isn't actually a good cop as well.


'Crazy Joe' is told from the alternating point of view of both Montana and Joe. In general I found Montana's perspective to be a bit more entertaining. His dry, caustic and somewhat cynical humor left me chuckling on more than one occasion and while I didn't find Joe quite and entertaining I still found him likable.

From start to finish circumstances in this story were bizarre and definitely over the top and while the flow from one POV to the other could have been a bit smoother. I was definitely entertained by the bizarre events that happened at the 77th precinct and enjoyed my brief visit there.
