Andie Stern thought she'd solved her final homicide. Once a budding FBI profiler, she gave up her career to raise her children. But one day, between soccer games and recitals, a very pregnant Andie pulls into a gas station—and stumbles across a murder scene. Suddenly, Andie is back on the trail of a killer, this time with kids in tow.
[A] ceaselessly funny debut ... Suburban Dicks is a well-oiled mystery, throughout which stereotypes fly from the mouths and pollute the minds of even well-meaning characters trying to get to the bottom of Sasmal's murder and the decades-old crime it points to. Nicieza, co-creator of Marvel's Deadpool, has set out to expose prejudice in all its hairy, shattering guises, and in so doing, he never fails to find a laugh where it hurts.
The plot unfolds at a fast-paced clip and with a great amount of confidence ... Suburban Dicks may be one of the most enjoyable crime stories I’ve read in recent years. Nicieza achieves a difficult balance between sarcastic amusement and realistic tragedy, never letting the story become too heavy or too light, dipping momentarily into each end as needed. There are deplorable characters, lovable characters, and pitiful losers in between. We never truly doubt that justice will be fully served by the end, but the path we take to getting there twists and turns in interesting directions.
