Paul Jacobson Geezer-Lit Mystery
review 1: I have added anything by Mike Befeler to my to be read list. He's an ingenious plotter and I love his protagonist Paul Jacobsen who's a hoot. A crusty old man with a quick temper, Paul also has another problem. While he ordinarily has a high I.Q. with a photographic memory, he has what Paul himself calls “foggy brain cells.” Meaning if he goes to sleep, the unthinkable happens and he loses his memory of what happened in the days before. One thing, and one thing only, keeps him from losing his memory. This book is loaded with surprises and lots of empathy for senior citizens. A book every mystery and cozy reader will enjoy.
review 2: This is my favorite of the Geezer-Lit series by Mike Befeler, though I'm a big fan of all of them. This tale of Paul Jacobs
... moreon, an octogenarian who suffers from short term memory loss, is fast paced, witty, laugh out loud funny and totally charming. Paul can't remember who he is when he wakes up and though he occasionally remembers to read the notes he leaves by his bedside, he often wakes and sees in amazement that he's snuggled next to a gorgeous young chick in her seventies. (He always finds out to his surprise that she is his bride of just a few months.) Paul is a one-liner gold mine and as the bodies pile up -- and around Paul Jacobson, they always manage to pile up -- he infuriates the police homicide detective assigned to the case. There are a lot of engaging twists and turns that keep the plot ticking along beautifully while Paul ambles along, trying to keep out of trouble but somehow always landing right in it. Paul Jacobson is a very elderly man but his wit and his joy in life makes the whole novel shine. I highly recommend this book. less
