Book review: L.B. Gregg; Catch Me If You Can

It is a kind of a adventure with something that slightly reminded me of a detective plot, but you could also describe this novel as a hilarious description of things going wrong the most comical way while there’s always an air of flirtation between the main characters. Sounds good to me, although less so-called humour could have been more, occasionally.
Caesar is the assistant of an art-gallery-owner in New York and during the opening of an exposition, the artist is undressing, his ex turns up to confuse him and a mysterious detective seems to follow him. The next day a priceless sculpture of Justin Timberland (contradictio in termini??!) is missing and Caesar has to find out what happened to JT, what his ex has to do with it, has to prove that his friend doesn’t have to do anything with any crimes, and why the macho detective Dan always seems to startle him. Is it mockery or seduction? Well, after being trapped under a bed in his ex’s apartment it becomes transparent that some carnal encounters add heaps of juice to this rollercoaster of a story.
Don’t expect much of a detective story but if you love some funny lines, odd situations and nice characters, this should be your treat for some reading hours.
