Product Overview

Youve probably heard about those guys with prestigious careers, expensive homes, beautiful wives and loving families, who coast along effortlessly thinking everything is fine, until one day they wake up and realize that theyve wasted their lives chasing dreams that werent theirs and pursuing goals that didnt make them happy. Well, except for the high-paying job, the beautiful woman, the kids and the nice house, thats pretty much my story. This is how the narrator and protagonist of The Useless Detective introduces himself. Hes arguably smarter than most people, but he has no ambition or work ethic, so aside from being a mediocre detective, hes also lazy, cynical, and usually drunk. Middle-aged and weary of life, he resents the fact that he never amounted to much. He doesnt particularly enjoy his work, but when he reluctantly attends a college reunion party, he finds himself thrust into a situation where the keen instincts of a private investigator are needed. His college friends have always looked down on him for not living up to his potential, and now-after twenty years-he finally has the opportunity to redeem himself in front of them. *Author: Kaplan, Robert Barry *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 240 *Publication Date: 2007/04/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.00 x 6.00 x 0.55 inches
