Looking for a chance to make a name for herself, Sesame Swallow, wanna-be Baltimore private eye, finds herself in the midst of her first real case and on a slipperier slope than usual to danger.
If Nancy Drew had come of age in the modern world, worn eye-popping short skirts and stilettos and drank Johnny Walker Black with the best of them, she would have been Sesame Swallow, a late-twenties party girl with an oral fetish straight from the not-so-hallowed halls of a local college and looking to make a splash in the shady world of private investigation. After months of questioning her career move, Sesame finally lands her first case: find a missing person, the web-famous wife of a local entrepreneur and wealthy businessman, but she’ll need to get her hands and her knees dirty to do the deed. A raunchy, laugh-out-loud adventure, this first in a series of seductive mysteries finds our sexy heroine doing what she does best: whatever must be done to whomever she must do it.
So let’s start with the title… Private investigation really isn’t a huge theme in this book. Sesame Swallow, Private Investigator is more of a raunchy, steamy book that focuses on a lot more sexual activity than the accurate job of a private investigator. However, the author’s writing is extremely funny and it sure isn’t lacking in entertainment.
D. Scott Meek had me cracking up right from the very first page. Sesame’s outlook on her job and her life was fun to read. Safe to say, her sexual escapades were more successful than her actual investigating although the name Sesame Swallow probably suggests where her strengths lie, or kneel, as it happened. The characters she meets along the way all brought something to the story too and it was a crazy ride.
A serious, complex plot this book is definitely not, but that wasn’t important. Throughout, from the job Sesame took on to her various sexual encounters, Sesame Swallow, Private Investigator was fast-paced, light-hearted and with a lot of laugh out loud moments. Of course, not everyone will be totally into the full-on crude story but if you’re packed with a sense of humour and a liking for some dirty humour at that, this book is a quick read which will win you over and I really enjoyed it.
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
What's a mid-40's divorced man to do after wrapping up twenty years in the US Navy? Why, start a career in teaching and writing, of course. Oh, and explore the world some more. And read everything possible. And go back to school. And enjoy every moment to its fullest.
A teacher for the government by day, I ply my wares at night on my laptop, where I'm cranking out silly blog posts, socio-political commentary, poetry, short stories and novels at an excessive rate. If I was driving, I'd have been pulled over by now. Meanwhile, I have kids to raise, a girlfriend to love, and a spunky wiener dog named Sloppy Joe to goof around with.
Beyond that, I'm busy with life, having fun, working out, going to parties, traveling, etc. When I burn out and die, I want to be able to say that I did everything that was possible for me to do. I want to die like I live: with a smile on my face.
