Troublemaker by Janet & Alex Evanovich

This is the first book in the Barnaby & Hooker graphic novel series. You'll remember those characters from Evanovich's Metro Girl or Motor Mouth novels?

The art's great, the characters are classic Evanovich. So what's wrong?

Well ... nothing really happens. And while that's not necessarily unusual for a serialized graphic novel (you've got to build the drama!), I found it unsatisfactory. I felt gypped.

Barnaby & Hooker flounce around Florida without a clue, but with a strange wooden hand. There are a couple of chase scenes. This is not a story.
