    I m a fan of Stuart Kaminsky and his many characters series This story was in the Toby Peters series, which often places famous characters into the plot The subject here was the circus and Emmet Kelly, and while not as funny or involving as others in this series, it was a solidly entertaining book The plot was a bit weaker than I have come to expect from the author and the wry humor that is a Kaminsky hallmark was too sparse in my opinion Nevertheless, this is a quick and light read, maki I m a fan of Stuart Kaminsky and his many characters series This story was in the Toby Peters series, which often places famous characters into the plot The subject here was the circus and Emmet Kelly, and while not as funny or involving as others in this series, it was a solidly entertaining book The plot was a bit weaker than I have come to expect from the author and the wry humor that is a Kaminsky hallmark was too sparse in my opinion Nevertheless, this is a quick and light read, making for a good respite fromserious literary fare call it a pleasant palette cleanser between courses If you ve never read anything by Kaminsky, however, I d recommend beginning with one of his other editions

    I think part of the reason I am not giving this one five stars is because the plot was very unexpected If you saw my review for Think Fast Mr.Peters you would see raving about how funny that book was, tears down my cheeks from laughing so hard I cried when I read this book too but for the complete opposite reason The other reason is the whole book was just very somber and serious, no zingers, no pep I plan on reading other books in the series though because I love these characters so much.

    I was at my local used bookstore several days ago when the cover of this book caught my eye I love clowns.Happy, sad, nice, evil I love clowns.I don t get what it is about clowns that give people the heebie jeebies.One of my favorite clowns is Pennywise from Stephen King s It.Book 7 Someone with a grudge against circuses is killing off the performers.Emmett Kelly hires Toby Peters to find out who it is.Good mystery sprinkled with real people.I d like to read the rest of the series.

    Private eye Toby Peters has been hired by famous clown Emmett Kelly, who feels that his gig in a small circus puts his life in jeopardy Kelly is also worried about the death of some circus elephants Soon after Peters arrives in Mirador to which local lawmen have warned him never to return , a tightrope walker dies in what Peters is sure is not an accident Peters calls on his Los Angeles friends to help him, but he s soon in serious danger, from criminals as well as the law.

    Consistent with the other two Toby Peters mysteries I ve heard, escapist noir near parody Peters is called by famous clown Emmet Kelly to investigate the suspicious death of a circus elephant near a town where Toby can t support the local sheriff When aerialists die from falls and bullet wounds, Peters is the sheriff s choice of fall guy An admirable distraction.

    This one was not Kaminsky s best, but it involves the circus, a gorilla named Gargantua, and Emmett Kelly, the famous clown who actually lived before my time Alfred Hitchcock also puts in an appearance The novel is set in a nasty town in either Orange or San Diego County.
