A Hatful of Pain, March 31, 2004
Reviewer: RE Penney "repenney2" (Laguna Beach, Cal.) - See all my reviews
An intensely satisfying murder mystery featuring the ALF, rock bands and a friendly tarantula. Animal rights with a light comedic touch. If the animals have a God, it surely must be the Animal Liberation Front!

Funny, high energy mystery, May 9, 1999
Reviewer: A reader
The humor is plentiful and pleasant. The main characters are heros, yet very real. While having fun reading the book, I learned so much about the philosophy of animal rights activists that I have become a vegetarian.


Far and away the most satisfying novel I've read in years., April 27, 1999
Reviewer: A reader
The dialogue is clever; the topic philosophically right on. I laughed and learned a lot about the animal rights movement. I came back online to buy several books to send to relatives.

A laugh-out-loud mystery. Hilarious., April 7, 1999
Reviewer: A reader
Outrageous, sometimes dark humor. Clearly one of the funniest books I've ever read.
