Think of combining Henry James and Robin Williams and setting the result loose on a romp through the nooks and crannies of Los Angeles in the person of Junior Bender, a burglar for our own times. The somewhat strange title quickly makes sense as Hallinan weaves a story that involves our cultural penchant for trying to replicate big successes. I really did laugh out loud and even read a few of the passages out loud to my wife. Junior is hard not to like. It was a treat to read. I will be back for more.

While in my mind, Junior Bender is no Poke Rafferty, this mystery is very entertaining and has a great neo-Noir/underbelly of Hollywood feel -- fans of Elmore Leonard will enjoy.
