John Zakour and Lawrence Ganem
John Zakour has been creating GeekToons for us since 1999.If you've seen any of the more than 250 we've got posted you know he's got a great sense of humor, especially when it comes to technology.If you check out the main GeekToons page you'll see mention of one of his newer books, A Man's Guide to Pregnancy.
But John has been producing funny stuff on a regular basis for us for years, so I figured it was a pretty good gamble that The Plutonium Blonde would be a good read.
I made out like a bandit on that bet, and by an appreciable margin.The Plutonium Blonde is funny, enjoyable, very well written, extremely well plotted, and contains good tech and lots of subtle humor (both geeky and otherwise).It's also a great detective story that kept me guessing on a lot of things until the very end, and it's graced with all the stock detective story situations and twists that make the great detective novels fun--but with distinctive Zakour/Ganem twists.The book is so smoothly written and devoid of any of the mistakes/quirks that I usually see in multiply authored books that I actually felt compelled to ask John after I'd finished reading it if he'd done all the writing and just collaborated with Lawrence on the plot.
John Zakour and Lawrence Ganem's The Plutonium Blonde gets the full 5 Geekheads for Readability.
