Synopses & Reviews
When Perry ends up in Venice on a European tour with his band Inchworm, he cant resist a visit to Harrys Bar, where Gobi told him shed meet him someday. The last time he saw Gobi, five people were assassinated one crazy night in New York City. Well . . . Gobi shows up, and once again Perry is roped into a wild, nonstop thrill ride with a body count. Double crossings, kidnappings, CIA agents, arms dealers, boat chases in Venetian canals, and a shootout in the middle of a Santa Claus convention ensue.
"Following the literally explosive events of Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick, 18-year-old Perry Stormaire's life has both settled down and markedly improved. His band, Inchworm, is on the rise, and he has a new, well-connected girlfriend, Paula, who has just helped book Inchworm on a 12-city European tour. Too good to be true? Oh, yes, it is. No sooner do Perry and his bandmates arrive in Venice then he's reunited with Gobija Zaksauskas, the lethal and gorgeous Lithuanian assassin-for-hire who Perry attempted to take to prom in the previous book. The story deploys like machine-gun fire in clipped, feverishly paced chapters (each named after a rock song) as Gobi and Perry race across Europe with a trail of bodies and destruction in their wake. Schreiber has a way with similes ('A third blast, and all of Europe jumped and shook itself off like a wet dog,' narrates Perry under rocket-propelled grenade assault in Switzerland), and the nonstop action, romantic intrigue, and everyteen haplessness on Perry's part remains an incendiary combination. Ages 14 up. Agent: Phyllis Westberg, Harold Ober Associates." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
