Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now available in paperback, Richard Belzer’s captivating, often hilarious debut mystery blends fact with fiction as his off-cam- era persona comes to life on the page, employing investigative know-how and comedic timing in equal measure to solve the mystery surrounding the disappearance of a trusted friend.

Fan favorite: Richard Belzer, a veteran stand-up comedian, has played the acerbic yet beloved Detective John Munch on NBC’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit—currently the highest rated series of the Law & Order franchise and one of NBC’s top–rated shows—for ten seasons. 

Phenomenal press: In addition to feature pieces in USA TODAY, the Daily News (New York), and stellar bookseller praise, I Am Not A Cop! garnered excellent reviews for the comedic actor’s first foray into fiction. It “perfectly captures the author’s comedic voice,” raved Kirkus Reviews. “Belzer’s snappy narration and behind-the-scenes look at life as a famous actor gives the book a sharp, funny edge.” 

Media connections: In addition to his Munch role, he has recently been featured as talent scout on Last Comic Standing, blogging for The Huffington Post, and filled-in for Randi Rhodes during his Air America time slot.

Synopsis:

In actor and comedian Belzer's captivating, hilarious debut novel, he brings his ubiquitous television character, Detective John Munch, to life to solve the suspicious disappearance of a friend.

Synopsis:

IN THIS CAPTIVATING, OFTEN HILARIOUS DEBUT MYSTERY, ONE OF THE GREAT COMEDIANS OF OUR TIME BLENDS FACT WITH FICTION, AS LAWandORDER: SVU'S RICHARD BELZER'S OFF-CAMERA PERSONA COMES TO LIFE ON THE PAGE, EMPLOYING INVESTIGATIVE KNOW-HOW AND COMEDIC TIMING IN EQUAL MEASURE TO SOLVE THE MYSTERY SURROUNDING THE DISAPPEARANCE OF A TRUSTED FRIEND.

When Richard Belzer meets Rudy Markovich, nyc medical examiner, for dinner in Brighton Beach, he has little reason to expect anything more than a friendly bull session. But in the next twenty-four hours Belzer finds himself in the middle of a vicious street brawl, splashed across the tabloid headlines as an out-of-control celeb, and fearing for the life of his good pal Rudy — who police assume is sleeping at the bottom of the East River.

As Belzer finds himself increasingly required to call upon the resources he taps to portray Detective Munch on nbc, he maintains his sense of humor and carries us along on a rollicking ride through the underworld of New York City. With Rudy kidnapped, or worse, it falls to The Belz to track him down and solve the riddle to the vanishing act.

The lives of Detective Munch and Richard Belzer collide and mesh in I Am Not a Cop! as one of America's great comics and TV cops brings all of his talents to bear in book form and provides a triumph of the mystery genre.
