Publisher's Summary

A man is found dead with a bullet hole in his chest, and private detective Brett Cornell is the number one suspect. It might have something to do with the fact that there were witnesses who had seen him punching the guy around only a few days earlier. Or - more likely - it might be because the police have discovered that the fatal bullet had been fired from his gun!
In the second novel of this detective series set in the late 1980s, self-proclaimed unscrupulous bastard Brett Cornell has to figure out who's trying to set him up: Could it be his lovely but meek new client? Or perhaps her equally lovely but far-from-meek roommate? Or might it actually be the beautiful and dynamic aerobics instructor he's recently taken up with?
In the meantime, Brett's legendary, Adonis-like features get severely damaged when he ends up catching the beating of his life - emotionally as well as physically - before he finally nails the identity of the real killer!

Nothing beats Brett.

It's impossible not to love this book, in fact it's impossible not to love the whole series!
My only warning is that if you got a broken rib and don't want a world of pain then you should wait because even without a broken rib there will be some pain involved with so much laughter.
All I can say is that this is not your usual book, there was a lot of thinking done in writing those great books.
I'm totally in love with this series, there is no equal for Brett and probably will never be !!!
Absolutely recommended !

Perfect narrator and a great story.

What made the experience of listening to Brett Aerobicizes the most enjoyable?

The narrator's characterization of the main character was spot on and the story was compelling and fast paced.

What other book might you compare Brett Aerobicizes to and why?

The Stone Barrington series by Stuart Woods. Life just happens to Brett and he also has no luck with the ladies.

Which scene was your favorite?

I liked the ending, which I won't spoil. Brett's banter with the lieutenant is a close second. He's so arrogant in situations he doesn't control, it's funny.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me laugh. I didn't cry.

Any additional comments?

Travis Henry Carter is now Brett to me. D’Aguanno followed some unexpected patterns and the dialogue is top notch. There’s a chemistry between Brett and the characters in the world not as apparent in the previous book. He still has disdain for some people and attraction to others but his interaction with Marilyn at the start of the novel is a good example. He notices everything about her. Of course, she’s attractive so he would but there’s almost a romance to his appreciation of her as a sexual object. These are the times when you can be sure that Brett has a soul. More than the first novel, Brett notices everything and his observations are frequently downright hilarious.

It's great bein' me, ain't it?

Still dreaming of retiring in four years time with loads of money and even more women to perform his every request, the self proclaimed unscrupulous bastard and P.I., Brett Cornell has a new client, Marilyn, the fiance, no less, of his arch enemy, the pugnacious policeman, Ralph. She is very attractive and, she tells him, still a virgin. Definitely seen as an open challenge by Brett. Even better, she also has a gorgeous room mate, Ginger.

All goes very well for Brett ("if you catch my drift") until he first gets badly beaten and loses part of his ear, then becomes prime suspect in a murder.
Told from the point of view of Brett himself, the antics of this self absorbed, egotistical, rude, crude, insensitive, narsasistic brute of a man may not be politically correct but sure is very funny. And he is perfectly captured in the narration of Travis Henry Carter as he reads with understanding and emotion and great intonation and pauses. His voicings of the other characters is also superb, especially those of the several women in the tale: he has a full cast seemingly at his disposal. A remarkable performance.

This is not a book for the easily offended: Brett really is a disgusting example of manhood. But for sometimes laugh out loud antics of this sex crazed moustachioed 'hero', this book cannot be beaten..
