    1. Original Post: thefoundingfields/2012/01/The Perplexing Problem of the Porcelain Bandits is the first novel by Dan Johnson that I’ve read, and is a self-published one. Although I’m not a huge fan of self-published novels, the two that I’ve read (The Legend of Adam Caine and The Perplexing Problem…) have proven to be quite enjoyable so far. Hopefully this trend continues.The novel itself is told entirely in the first person point of view of Adam Baker, your average Joe who is underemploye [...]

    2. The author sent me a copy of this novel to review and I liked the story but there were a few things that just didn't work for me.First off, it's definitely not a page turner, but a slow burn. Most novels take me only a couple of days to finish, where this one took what seemed like forever. That's not a bad thing, but it is unusual for me. One thing that stood out for me was the misuse of some words,especially 'livid' and 'irate'. When I picture someone who is livid, or irate, I picture steam com [...]

    3. Combine the questionable death of a mysterious young entrepreneur, his unemployed housemate with an open agenda, and an illicit toilet-making business and you’ve got a mystery book (self-published, at that!) bursting with San Francisco flavor and irresistible personality. Alex Baker, the newfound amateur detective, carries the story in his own haphazard way and I gladly wandered with him. With sharp dialogue, relevant humor, and a quirky cast of characters I found it difficult to put the book [...]

    4. If you love San Francisco and/or you love mysteries, you'll enjoy this book. The same is true if you like witty, clever writing and engaging characters. Alex, the main character, is a protagonist you don't see often--kind of cynical, extremely bright, with high expectations about how life could be, if only people didn't have the tendency to focus on the superficial. When his roommate dies suddenly, Alex is thrown into a bizarre series of circumstances that lead him on an investigative journey th [...]

    5. This is a first published book by the son of my oldest friend, so I may be prejudiced, but I don't think so. I laughed out loud often in this book about a young man living in San Francisco in a house with five house-mates. When one of his house-mates is murdered it begins the quest to find out who he really was, where are his parents, and why was he murdered. I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish. I read the book on my Kindle, but it's a paperback too.
