This gets a very decent 4. Apr 07, Dez Nemec rated it liked it Shelves: , horror. Jeff Strand just makes me laugh. We start at the beginning with a note: "Graverobbers Wanted No Experience Necessary was written in the late 90s and first published in That is why there are references to silly things like pagers and VHS tapes. So naturally, they say yes.

After all, she was beautiful. And she swears she didn't kill him. Digging up the grave, they hear an odd noise. Then when they open the pine box, he bursts out with a gun, pretty deranged from having been buried alive and actually dies. Andrew and Roger are subsequently shot with arrows and kidnapped, thrusting them into a came of cat and mouse with a deranged killer that they can't possibly win. Or can they? Not my favorite Strand novel, but quality entertainment.

The actual story was well structured, full of twists and turns and the identity of the killer was carefully concealed until the very end happy to say that I managed to get that wrong on more than one occasion. As always with Jeff Strand's fun stories, the characters were wonderful, detail great and storyline fast moving and exciting - I also noticed less blood, gore Fantastic!

As always with Jeff Strand's fun stories, the characters were wonderful, detail great and storyline fast moving and exciting - I also noticed less blood, gore and mutilations than in most of his tales, but rest assured, if this disappoints you, the storyline and characters definitely make up for the lack of these features Ok, off to get myself a packet of Trojans and a copy of the next Andrew Mayhem story.

Andrew Mayhem

Just finished all four Andrew Mayhem books This kind of dark humor is extremely difficult to write well, but Strand is a master. He's got that magical thing most comedians would kill for - timing! I never got the feeling that he was trying too hard. If the story called for three or four serious pages without any jokes, that's exactly what you got. And - this was the icing on the cake for me, because he didn't hold back to make it more mainstream - the extreme, gory, gross, horrible Just finished all four Andrew Mayhem books And - this was the icing on the cake for me, because he didn't hold back to make it more mainstream - the extreme, gory, gross, horrible and sometimes inventive violence that occured Respect,Sir!

If you are easily shocked or prefer your humor clean, I would recommend Terry Pratchett. If you want a balls to the wall thrill ride of blood and guts and amputations, Strand is the man! Jan 18, Christina rated it liked it Shelves: challenge. It started out more like a dark comedy, but almost midway through went into less comedy horror and shifted to a more serious and darker realm. I was looking for more well rounded comedy horror in this.

Talk about feckless protagonists [I've been reviewing a 6-book series with a female protagonist who is nothing but feckless]: Andrew Mayhem, husband, father of 2 feisty offspring, non-worker, bouncing from university major to major to major, now from not-job to not-job, doing odds and ends to earn an income while his registered nurse wife "brings home the bacon," tries out videotaping a cheating spouse not his and ends up beaten and assaulted not by cheater but on his behalf which is very difficult to explain to Andrew's long-suffering wife Helen.

Next, in the vein of "too good to be true," a curvaceous blonde offers Andrew and best friend Roger never the sharpest tool in the shed 20K to--wait for it--exhume her husband. But hang on! Husband isn't buried in a cemetery. No, his grave is off in the woods, isolated, untended, and had nothing to do with a funeral home or normal interment. That alone would make most folks suspicious, and leery of participating. Not so this non-dynamic duo.

Jeff Strand

Before the novel ends, a lot of people are going to get hurt, some very badly fatally and it's not pretty , there will be abductions, confinement, terrors, threats, natural deaths, and broken bones. The storyline turns really ugly but unfortunately, somewhere in the world such events probably are occurring, given the nature of modern culture.

Strand manages to leaven the horror throughout with the most clever humor. I generally eschew comedy in favor of real horror, but in this storyline I don't think I could have handled my outrage if it weren't for the consistent humorous notes so cleverly interwoven. Kudos to Jeff Strand for bringing a mystery that is both humor-filled and horrendous.

Dec 28, Neal Hock rated it it was amazing. In this first book of the Mayhem series, we are introduced to Andrew Mayhem—devoted husband, loving father, wannabe private eye, and all-around magnet for trouble. In this story, we find Andrew short on money, without a steady job, and owing money for a recent car accident. Enter the beautiful woman with an offer for Andrew and his friend, Roger, they simply cannot refuse.

How much trouble can they really get into by digging up a fresh grave? Turns out A LOT. What follows is a wild ride in which the stakes steadily rise. Feb 08, Carl Alves rated it it was amazing. However, Andrew Mayhem, a married father of two small children, is anything but wise. When Andrew and his friend take the assignment, the corpse turns out to be alive and wielding a gun. Things only get worse from there as Andrew comes across Ghoulish Delights, which fronts as a production company for hire for people wanting to star in short horror movies.

It becomes very apparent to Andrew that Ghoulish Delights is a front for something far more serious. My biggest quibble with the novel was that there were a couple of scenes that were a bit unrealistic and it became hard to suspend disbelief. What worked really well was how things just kept getting worse and worse for Andrew, and he had to show some serious mettle and resourcefulness to get out of them. This was an enjoyable novel, and I look forward to reading the second in the series.

Working 13 hr shifts and devoting most of my time at home to my little girls, it's a challenge to find time to read as much as I'd like to. Yesterday, I dipped into my first experience with Jeff Strand and somehow managed to read the entire book in one day thanks girls, for letting daddy sneak away every now and then;. I loved this book. I'll even go out on a limb and say it was the best book I've read this year It was funny It Working 13 hr shifts and devoting most of my time at home to my little girls, it's a challenge to find time to read as much as I'd like to.

It was scary It was terrifying at times. It was fast paced and never once did it get to that point where I wanted to put it down. This guy can write and I simply can't wait to read more from him.

Already ordered a few more books of his online. I'm not going to go into plot details. In fact, do what I did and pick up this book and start reading it before you even read the back cover's synopsis. Just dive in and enjoy the ride. Can you tell I really liked this book? Sep 13, Cindy rated it really liked it. Is this a humorous horror novel or a humor novel with a lot of gore?

It's kind of both and neither. Strand has a very original take on the horror genre. His 'hero' is Andrew Mayhem - and don't you love that name?! Okay, it's more than a little bizarre but it was a fun, snarky ride. Mayhem had Is this a humorous horror novel or a humor novel with a lot of gore? Mayhem had that smart-ass attitude that seems to get him in deeper and deeper.

I knew that this was going to be an interesting ride when Mayhem goes up in a treehouse to film an unfaithful husband and discovers that it's stocked with "comic books, soda cans, and a custom-made Quadriplegic Barbie. But I will be reading the rest of this series. Cripes, with a friend like that I'd move to somewhere safe, like Somalia. This book got a lot of smiles and a few chuckles out of me. Couldn't help but to feel for Andrew and his sidekick, after all he just wanted to help his family but he just couldn't get it right.

Had a good plot, not a whole lot of characters to keep track of, but still Cripes, with a friend like that I'd move to somewhere safe, like Somalia. Had a good plot, not a whole lot of characters to keep track of, but still didn't know who the culprit was until pretty much the very end.
