Having sex with the bosses son in the copy room at the office Christmas party might not be the best way to further one's career. Who knew? Apparently Dectective Montana Delray of the New Orleans Police Department didn't or at least he didn't know that the hot young man who practically dragged him into the copy room was his captain's son nor did he know that his captain was going to walk in and catch them with their pants down...literally...oopsie, so much for that promising police career.
It was this momentary indiscretion that causes Montana to find himself suddenly an officer of the 77th Precinct. That this precinct is a bit on the bizarre side is a mild understatement. Turns out the best thing that the 77th has going for it is Crazy Joe. He's either crazy or there's some truth to the rumor that he's psychic, but the one thing Montana knows for sure is he's hot, he's gay, he's definitely interested and damned if he isn't actually a good cop as well.
'Crazy Joe' is told from the alternating point of view of both Montana and Joe. In general I found Montana's perspective to be a bit more entertaining. His dry, caustic and somewhat cynical humor left me chuckling on more than one occasion and while I didn't find Joe quite and entertaining I still found him likable.
From start to finish circumstances in this story were bizarre and definitely over the top and while the flow from one POV to the other could have been a bit smoother. I was definitely entertained by the bizarre events that happened at the 77th precinct and enjoyed my brief visit there.
