The Corpse Wear Pasties

The Corpse Wore Pasties (Hard Case Crime, #62)The Corpse Wore Pasties by Jonny Porkpie
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

When Victoria Vice, widely hated in the burlesque world for being a blatant plagiarist, winds up dead, none other than Jonny Porkpie ends up being blamed. After all, he's the one that the entire audience saw hand her the prop bottle containing real poison. In order to clear his name, Porkpie goes on a quest through the burlesque world to find out who framed him. Only, maybe things aren't exactly as they seem...

The Corse Wore Pasties, aside from having one of the better titles in the Hard Case Crime Series, is a pretty fun book. Lots of humor, mostly at the expense of poor Jonny Porkpie. There's a tiny bit of smut but its no where near as dirty as The Money Shot, for instance. The plot isn't bad either, although I guessed who the killer was about halfway through.

To sum up, The Corpse Wore Pasties isn't going to win any literary awards but it's a fun way to spend a few hours.
