  • Fat Chance’ – Wonderful Humor by R.J. LeahyHumor in literature has always been a precious rarity: just a handful of writers excelled in this field. Nowadays, when a massive commercial promotion of mediocrity is funded by big publishers, discovering a really good read in this category is less realistic than inheriting a big fortune from poor relatives. Fat chance, some would say. But I found one! Coincidentally, the novel’s title is Fat Chance, by R.J. Leahy. A fabulous piece of literature, [...]


  • Uproariously funny! I can't wait to read more by this author! I would actually pay to go see this if it is made into a movie, and I haven't paid for a movie ticket in years! Not many books have me laughing out loud, but this one was beyond hilarious in a lot of ways. I am really lousy at reviewing, so I will just say read it. You won't regret it


  • A fun read. I thought the humor was my kind of sarcasm and kept me laughing. The mystery was fun. A quirky cast of characters kept me turning the pages.


  • So glad I read this book. What a great cast of characters, and characters they are. I laughed so hard my mascara ran. If you are looking for a fun easy read this is the book.


  • This is a fun, light read that is easy to get lost in. Sean McDermott is a private detective that bumbles his way through life with a quick, sarcastic wit. His character is entertaining, even if his sarcasm is at times irritating to those around him.The cast of side characters is well crafted, unique, and kept me fully engaged. I particularly loved the side kick Sean picked up on the case in Mystic Falls. The interplay between them had some laugh out loud moments.The story is held up more by the [...]


  • Fat Chance is a hilarious adventure from start to finish. Sean McDermott is a snarky New York detective who finds himself stuck in a small New Mexican town and forced to solve a missing person’s case, in which he becomes the prime suspect. He meets a host of interesting personalities from the waitress at the diner who tells him that of course he shouldn’t have ordered the eggs if he’s allergic to peppers to the older Asian woman whose Cadillac has been altered to drive only under 40 mph to [...]


  • Fat Chance by R.J. Leahy: laughs and light mystery. A likeable, smart aleck NY detective gets stranded in a small New Mexico town and partners, sort of, with a crotchety Japanese-American widow there to visit her husband’s grave. Together they search for a missing special-needs local nicknamed “Fat Chance.”I often read in bed, and Fat Chance passed the toothbrush test: that is, while brushing my teeth, I found myself looking forward to getting into bed with Fat Chance (the book, not the ch [...]


  • Good light reading, in more ways than one. Detective story and the detective is pretty witty. I enjoyed his turn of phrase almost more than the plot twists trying to figure out "who done it." My favorite passage, I had to go back and look it up (he was talking about NM, but I think it applies to NV as well.) Here the sun's rays aren't blocked by tall buildings or impeded by the blessed light diffusing effects of smog. Here once the sun has peeked above the last hilltop, there's nothing to stop i [...]


  • A crazy 3 days in a crazy place,full of crazy peopleONE of the most enjoyable books I have read in a long time.I was actually laughing out loud at parts.I had no problem seeing this in "movie" form, in my head.I highly recommend this book.


  • I absolutely loved itThe characters were truly funny not silly funny- each one unique and interesting. The plot is good and not predictable. I am looking forward to more of his books.


  • This was a book that I was able to get for free through on my Kindle. It was a light read. I really enjoyed it. I thought poor Sean would be in Mystic Falls (without any falls) for forever!!


  • Fun fish-out-of-water mystery full of quirky characters, plot twists and turns, the occasional red herring and far less cliches than this review. Enjoyed it thoroughly.


  • Silly story but some great snarky lines. Author probably wanted to be a standup comic. Some very interesting characters whom you would not want to meet. Five stars for the sarcasm.


  • Picked this book up as an freebie, and -even though it needs better editing- I enjoyed this light and fun story.


  • Author does and can write interesting novels, (this IS one) the foul language is unnecessary but that's a reader's personal choice.


  • Entertaining mystery with humor galoreIf you are looking for an entertaining quick read this is it. This was my first R.J. Leahy book but it won't be my last.


  • Fun and fast pacedThis was a fun read, interesting characters, fun plot twists and a surprise ending. really enjoyed reading the book.Great !
