Art Hound (Dev Haskell) by Mike Faricy

Mike Faricy has been cranking out the funny PI adventures of Dev Haskell at an impressive rate for years now. Every now and then I'm in the mood for some lighter fare and pick them up.
In this one Dev is stuck with a starving artist that has been just kicked out by his girlfriend. He ends up in a mystery involving strangely ugly paintings, international art and of course a few attractive ladies.
I wouldn't say the comedy always work in this series, but in this one it really did. I chuckled quite a few times and there's enough of a detective story with a good twist and reveal at the end to satisfy mystery readers. One of the better ones in the series.
