Greasing the Pinata – Book Review

Greasing the Pinata

By: Tim Maleeny
Reviewed by: Paul McMahon

Maleeny gets a lot of praise for being “a new prince of detective fiction.”  I would say he is getting ripe, but not ready for the big leagues.

The book has an interesting plot about how the Mexican drug lords are investing their money in “green” enterprises such as selling carbon credits earned by trapping the large amount of methane provided by 30,000 pigs and converting it into less harmful carbon dioxide.  Who cares if the amount of methane converted is overstated.  There are a lot of humorous events in the  story along with a few murders, etc.

A pretty good book, but not James Lee Burke.
