Planet Willie by Josh Shoemake

Overview:

Willie Lee is a highly unusual angel. Irreverent, hilarious, and politically incorrect, he tends to make the most of his time on Planet Earth whenever he gets sent down as a detective in the Paradise Police Department, Lost Souls Division.

Now Willie's on the trail of a beautiful art dealer named Fernanda Shore who may have stolen her father's prized painting and who's wandered far off the straight and narrow. And Willie's looking for any excuse to extend his time away from the boring clouds. Which partially explains the belly dancers, the fine Western apparel, the Albanian terrorists, the cape, the bourbon, the nuns, and the cliffs of Acapulco.

Et cetera.

Because for Willie it's the et cetera that makes life worth living, as long and as hard as they’ll let him.

"Fasten your seat belts and prepare for loop-de-loops. Willie is one hell of a ride." - Book Monthly


My Review:

The author's vision is very original.  I can honestly say I've never read anything quite like it before!

The main character is Willie Lee, who is an Angel in heaven awaiting change.  He receives his wish and he is assigned as a detective from the Paradise Police Department to incarnate and return to earth to investigate an Art theft.

I really enjoyed the author's writing and wit.  I look forward to reading more of his books.  The book was cleverly written and I have to say anything, nothing like I have ever read before.

Thank you to the publisher for providing me with a complimentary copy for my review.
