Fun and delightful creation! " Whacking Beverly Hills" was a joy to read and a delicious adventure from an accomplished writer. I enjoyed the characters and the pace of the unfolding adventure. Fun, witty and dangerous all combined into an adventure that kept me interested to the very end! Bravo, Walker, loved it! Read more

"I'm 12, not stupid." ...announced Beverly's precocious son, Billy, in this enjoyable romp through the SW United States. Housekeeper Beverly is mistaken as a witness to a murder by both the mob and law enforcement, causing Beverly to flee on a multi-state road trip, taking Billy and her friend, Marci, along. This is my favorite Walker O'Brien story up to now. The plot moves nicely forward towards an exciting conclusion. And, there's a pink car! Read more
