This week, my book is The Last Word by Lisa Lutz, the sixth book in the Spellman series.
And it starts like this:
To All Spellman Employees:
Pants are mandatory.
Footwear is encouraged.
And moving ahead to page 56, we find:
"Since Mr. and Mrs. Spellman own the property in which you do business, they would like a rental agreement in place. I've looked at comparable spaces, with access to a kitchen, bathroom, television, and a view."
"What view are you talking about?"
"There's a window."
For those who know the series, this is another great read with plenty more laughs. And if you haven't found the series yet? Well, it features a dysfunctional family of PI's who spy on each other to learn about what is happening in their lives. It's funny and touching at the same time.
I finished the book this afternoon, so if you want to read more, here's my review.
