I am absolutely the wrong audience for this book. Twenty-something paper-pusher meets private detective who takes him along on the search for the only girl he ever dated--who the detective claims stole $20M. Lots of boring talk, lots of boring reminiscing about "the girl who didn't love him back," buying and ruining expensive clothes, and endless driving around looking at stuff. The GOOD new is it put me to sleep after only 4 or 5 pages every night for weeks.
