Book Review: Joyce Holms – Hot Potato

Posted by HelenEdith on October 27, 2007

This was a book that took a lot of getting into. It’s actually part of a series of books featuring Fizz Fitzgerald and the long-suffering Tam Buchanan, and I wonder whether it would have been easier to start with the first book in the series.

In this book, Fizz and Tam rescue an elderly and very drunk man from some bogus cops who seem to be intent on killing him. The trouble is that Scott McKenzie is so drunk that he has no idea why anybody would want to kill him.

We follow the adventures of Fizz and Tam as they attempt to keep Scott save and out of the way of whoever wants him dead until such time as they can figure out why anyone wants him dead in the first place.

This was quite a humorously written book, what with Fizz’s antics and Tam’s long-suffering reactions to them, but I’m probably not in a hurry to reacquaint myself.
