    1. Amelia Bedilia meets Carl Hiaasen. Reminded me of the time Amelia gave the bridal "shower" to a friend, everything was all mixed up and I guess funny except instead of a housecleaner it involved mobsters, prison wardens, pornographers, and fish ladies. I suppose I missed the humor1 1/2 stars


    2. While I really enjoyed the Garth Carson novels by Brian M. Wiprud, Sleep with the Fishes left a bit to be desired. Too many ancillary characters with little to no character description or character development. Unlike the other Brian M. Wiprud books I've read, this one isn't a mystery; it's simply a comedy of errors. Which isn't a bad thing, but if you're looking for a comedic mystery this isn't it.The humor in this book felt somewhat forced. The narrative was confusing at times, leaving me to w [...]


    3. Stand-alone mystery featuring Sid "Sleep" Bifulco, ex-con who shunned the government's offer of Witness Protection and opts to set out on his own, trying to stay away from multiple Mafia baddies who have good reason to ice him--since he rolled over on them! After seven years inside, he buys a small cottage on a river and hopes to begin leading a quiet life fishing--something he's never done but which he became interested in while in prison and read everything he could on the subject, even to the [...]


    4. I'd give this 3.5 stars. A comedic mystery that involves a cast of wacky characters. The story centers around a former mob guy that spent time in jail after turning against other mob members, who gets into learning about fishing while in jail, is released from jail, and is living under an alias name in a house on a lake. All kinds of hijinks ensue, including a mixup between a videotape of a guy that gets accidentally run over by the mob guys neighbor, and a funny conversation and misunderstandin [...]


    5. Because I was working so many days in a row, I chose Sleep with the Fishes because it seemed like a fun, light read. So it was OK for awhile. But then I got tired of everything having two meanings or zany, wacky slip-ups at every turn. It was a mobster's Abbott and Costello, and these days I don't have a long attention span for an entire book of goofiness. I couldn't wait for it to be done, and while at the beginning I kind of liked Sid the reformed hit man and Russ, the fisherman who's lost his [...]


    6. My first B M Wiprud and I really enjoyed it. If you like Carl Hiaasen then you will enjoy this. Quirky characters finding themselves in screwball situations which become more twisted with every turn of the page. The central charater learnt to fly fish in prison - that sets the tone of this enjoyable farce!


    7. Um. It's about, like, fishing? It's not like the Sopranos at all. Not AT ALL. That review written by Lee Child is very misleading.The dialogue is so full of cliche, the characters are breaking out in cliche zits that have cliche pus leaking out them.
