Marshall Karp is an acclaimed playwright known for his witty sense of humor and crackling dialogue. His debut novel The Rabbit Factory stars the irreverent LAPD detective duo of Mike Lomax and Terry Biggs. Dean Lamaar is the architect of an entertainment empire and the creator of iconic characters like Rambunctious Rabbit and McGreedy the Moose. When his company falls on hard times, the only hope to get it back in the black is Familyland-an amusement park in Las Vegas. Mere days before the grand opening, an actor playing Rambunctious Rabbit is found dead on the park grounds and everyone senses foul play. And after more characters wind up murdered, it becomes obvious that someone has it in for Lamaar. Lomax and Biggs are put on the case and together they root out a murderer. This rollicking tale is at once a multi-layered whodunit and a skewering of Tinseltown.

    " That was really good. I read half of it in the last 3 days. Despite the fact that it took a month to finish, it really was a quick read. Looking forward to reading the next 3 installments and more! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 2/4/2014

    " Great mystery. Didn't see the end til the very last. Good leisure reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lee | 2/2/2014

    " I enjoyed reading this. I could identify with the narrator, Mike Lomax. The mix of humor was appropriate and the right intensity. I got the jokes, or at least I think I did. the side-stories added some interest without getting in the way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanne | 1/30/2014

    " I really liked this new series about two cops. There's a lot of humor, which I always enjoy, and the partners' relationships seems pretty stable which is a rarity in this genre. I look forward to reading more by this author. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Keith Evans | 1/24/2014

    " I accidentally picked this up and read the first chapter. I was intrigued and read the entire book in 2 days. I don't know if I would recommend it to someone, but it was an enjoyable read and a good way to pass the time when I read it. It was a bit over the top at times, but decent overall. I would not continue to read the Lomax and Biggs novels however. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 12/27/2013

    " Not bad. A fun, sometimes funny detective novel, with goofy characters, smarter than many in this genre. Sometimes reaches a bit too much for the laugh. Perfect beach read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deborah | 12/18/2013

    " I love crime thrillers, but sometimes I find the genre getting a bit old. Same old story lines, same washed up characters. Enter Karp. This is a fantastic read that will have you belly-laughing whilst glued to every word. Fast paced and well written, the characters are exceptional. There's plenty of behind the scenes irony and word-play. I would highly recommend this to fellow crime novel enthusiasts. I look forward to reading more of these books! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ankit Mittal | 12/2/2013

    " it's rather long and while many felt it's funny I didn't find it so funny. I felt it was filled with lots of unnecessary details that did not add to the plot, the subplot was pathetic and the overall plot was way over the top. No character in the novel was outstanding and hero mourning for his wife by sleeping with a hooker is the most absurd concept ever. I would not recommend this to anyone. It's a complete waste of time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda Marchand | 11/17/2013

    " Its cute, thought its long its pretty easy to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne Fisher | 10/22/2013

    " I really like these Marshall Karp books. The dialog and smartassary of the characters just delights me for some reason. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheri | 10/21/2013

    " I don't remember where I heard about this book, but I really enjoyed it and look forward to more from this author. Good story, good characters, and humor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nico | 10/10/2013

    " What makes this memorable are the relationships between characters; the mystery is humdrum. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandra | 8/5/2013

    " Lots of fun. Great summer read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 3/22/2013

    " My kind of read..funny ..fast..heartwarming..and a who-done-it all wrapped up in 600 pages of non stop action. Lomax and Biggs..the perfect cop duo work this case in beautiful LA and do it with lots of laughs. I would give it another half star if available. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wyndslash | 7/18/2012

    " The hetero sex parts made me go 'eep'...but that's only because I love m/m romances. That said, the mystery part was excellent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gary Chamberland | 2/1/2012

    " Loved it. Will not be the last book I read by Karp. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 11/12/2011

    " I picked this up because they compared his writing to Carl Hiaasen, whose books I love. While not quite on par with the Hiaasen books, I enjoyed all three of Karp's Lomax and Biggs mysteries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ferree | 6/26/2011

    " Good writing, nice depth and character development for a mystery. I could have done without all f-ing the language, but for some readers I guess that would make it more authentic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 4/17/2011

    " LANGUAGE!!! The story was a good one with a few twists to make it interesting but the language ruined it!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bridget | 3/9/2011

    " It seemed kind of long in the middle, but not a bad mystery. I plan to check out the next book with the detectives from this one. "

    " This was not your typical murder mystery. Not very gruesome and lots of humor mixed in. A more "intellectual" type of mystery. Can't wait to read the next one. "

    " i was surprised that this book was ever published. it seemed like someone's first attempt at writing a book - dull and unfinished. it also laid it on pretty thick with trying to be shocking. i want the half hour of my life back that i gave to this book. "
