Detective "Fat Ollie" (Oliver Wendell Weeks) can win samba contests, play piano, and eat with both hands while talking. This amusing and fast-paced cop story meanders through a cast of characters, including a sexy rookie cop/love interest and a transvestite junkie hooker. As for the eponymous book, Fat Ollie has penned a chronically bad detective novel that has been stolen, and he pursues this "read herring" along with a murder case and a mega-bundle of drugs. Voice actor Ron McLarty creates funny, easily visualized characters. From gravelly, Brooklyn-tinged Ollie to the calm Latino "switch-hitting hooker," McLarty breathes comic life into his characters. Good fun, lots of laughs--Fat Ollie rocks! D.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 03]
