Repossession is 9/10ths of the Law by Hank Edwards

Alan Baxter barely scrapes by working as a deejay in suburban Detroit. To make ends meet, he takes a job as an automobile repossession agent, and discovers his very first assignment is a car owned by his drug dealer ex-boyfriend. On top of that, a body is discovered in the trunk…by a cop. Soon Alan’s life is completely upturned as he is pulled into a mystery involving more bodies, a highly lethal new street drug, a mysterious man with a top hat and cane, raging dwarves, a house fire, a cranky police detective, and his even crankier cat!

This book will intrigue you from the very beginning.  You start out in a gay nightclub where our main character, Alan, works as a deejay.  We meet his two besties (one of which whom also performs at the club as a drag queen) and then get to go on a repossession with him. Everything in Alan’s life starts to fall apart from there on.

While this book has plenty of action it tends to get almost tedious and repetitive in the middle as you approach the end. I was satisfied with the ending and therefore was happy with the book overall, I just believe it needed to have a few scenes cut from the middle.

This book will keep you guessing who the villain is until the very end! Overall this book is an unfortunate, and deadly in some cases, comedy of errors. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes suspense and angst in their dramas and won’t mind the extra length.
