There are three things that rank high on my list when I read a new book - well-written story, interesting characters, suspense to keep you on your toes, and some fun thrown in for good measure. This book had it all. So what do you get when you mix an Iraq War veteran Annie Ogden who has spent three tormented months living in a cabin alone trying to re-discover her purpose in life with Max Vinyl's entrepreneurial and somewhat sketchy computer recycling racket? You get one heck of a story that's for sure!

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. The storyline was original and plotted well to keep the suspense building to the final scene. I loved all of the diverse characters; some were so inventive and quirky that I laughed quite a few times during the story. I enjoyed the interesting premise about computer recycling and learned some things I did not know. I love that aspect! Brook's writing style is smooth and easy to read, which makes it irresistible to read the entire book in a couple of sittings. I highly recommend and I look forward to more books from this author.

Doing Max Vinyl, An Annie Ogden Mystery by Frederick Lee Brooke reminded me of War of the Roses, but in the business world.

Max Vinyl's company TSR, Inc. recovers old data processing equipment, recycles useable parts and disposes of hazardous parts using environmentally sound methods. Unfortunately, Max's method of disposing of the hazardous waste is to load it on a barge and dump in the river, in the middle of the night.

The novel is revenge personified! Max's "tree hugging" receptionist/lover, Tris, realizes he is a fraud when she discovers the barge loaded with computer parts. Before she can quit, his manager fires her without his knowledge, leaving him without a receptionist and a lover. He purchases ten dozen roses as a peace offering but she begins enacting her revenge as he attempts to deliver them. The thorns of ten dozen roses can really leave their mark!

Enter Annie Ogden, former teacher and Iraq war veteran, who becomes involved with TSR, Inc. when her sister, Alison, takes a GPS that Max's two ex-con employees, Ike and Tran, inadvertently leave at a restaurant. As revenge, Ike and Tran take Alison's husband's vast collection of cell phones. Ike is one unforgetable character with a bolt through his eyebrow, complete with washers and nut. The image of Ike after Annie gets through with him is priceless!

I enjoyed the details about the ancient 8' long creature that lives in the lake and swims among the sunken ships and computer equipment. He isn't happy with Max either!

Tris and Annie do not know each other but work in concert Doing Max Vinyl... and he deserves every bit.

How do you characterize a novel like DOING MAX VINYL by Frederick Lee Brooke? Crime thriller? Check. Comedy? Check. Brilliantly conceived character exploration? Check, check, check. DOING MAX VINYL is all that and a bag of microchips (read the book and you'll know what I mean).

Maybe it was the perfectly rendered locations around the Midwest (which briefly included my hometown). Maybe it was the expertly crafted plot that chugged along like a locomotive, the snappy dialogue or the spectacular cast of characters so genuine I felt I knew them personally. Or maybe it's just the massive literary talent of author Frederick Lee Brooke who has crafted this highly amusing and endlessly entertaining novel you would be foolish to miss.

DOING MAX VINYL reads like some of the best of Elmore Leonard or Carl Hiaasen. You've got your greedy corporate criminals, deviously dangerous but goofy henchmen, jilted lovers, innocent heroes and closely guarded secrets kept at every level all woven together with a precision that will keep you riveted until the final page then wishing for more. (Fortunately, there is more and I'm looking forward to Brooke's other novel, ZOMBIE CANDY).

Honestly, folks, I can't recommend this one highly enough. Do yourselves a favor and pick up DOING MAX VINYL. By the end of page one, you'll understand what all the fuss is about.

Annie Ogden feels at loose ends after three military tours in Iraq. Her sister's mishap with a GPS and her brother-in-law's missing cell phone collection feed Annie's compulsive desire to follow a moving target. Annie's target is Max Vinyl.

Max Vinyl is an ordinary sleaze who aspires to be a respected businessman in a successful relationship. The day Max sells eighty percent of his shady recycling business to Korean businessmen is the best and worst day of his life. With three million dollars, Max can help his aging uncle pay for his aunt's medical care. He can take the plunge into a more serious relationship with his current girlfriend. Max's love life turns sour when his environmentalist girlfriend blackmails him. Max's business explodes in his face when his employees lose a GPS and computer data belonging to a prestigious accounting firm.

Max runs his business fast and hard like his seven expensive sports cars. His crew consists of an eclectic group of ex-cons who get the job done, in a roundabout way. The fast quips and capers of ex-cons, Ike and Tranny, are hilarious. Entertaining characters and slapstick comedy make this Annie Ogden mystery a fun read. Watch Max's life spiral downward as his business and his women get out of hand.
