Everything is Broken by Tony Decastro is a wonderful read. The narrative, taking place around Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, is fun, engaging, and witty. The reader vicariously experiences all the highs & lows of being a private eye through Fuzzy Koella’s leathery and yet affable first-person perspective.

As an author, Tony excels in descriptive prose and witty observations that Fuzzy makes about the various suspects and acquaintances he encounters throughout his investigation. His characters are colorful, impacting, and sympathetic, whether he’s describing strippers with a heart of gold, raging cops, creepy stalkers, corrupt coaches and ballplayers, or easy bartenders. As someone who lives in South Carolina, and a failed private investigator myself, I read the book with prurient interest, always wondering how different my life would have been if I had landed myself a job as a PI and had the chance to get involved with gangsters, murderers and dangerous gorgeous women.

This is a fun book to read, particularly if you’ve ever wanted to take a walk down a dark alley and mingle with danger.
