    After a long and lauded career in the Boston PD - 34 years, two medals of honor, two medals for valor, three medals for merit, and a Commendation from the Mayor to boot - Eddie Perlmutter was finally forced into retirement for medical reasons.Though he'd love to stay in the old neighborhood, the traumatic arthritis in his knuckles and bum knees just isn't tolerating the cold Boston winters very well. So what's a New England Jewish retiree to do? Move to Boca Raton of course!A friend lines Eddie up with a cushy security job at a posh country club, but as Eddie soon learns things are anything but laid back in sunny south Florida. Before he knows it Eddie is roped in to trying to solve the year-old murder of one of the gated community's residents.Along the way he stumbles upon a counterfeiting ring, which is funding a meth lab, which happens to be run by the Russian mafia. Oh, and there's the small matter of the white supremacists that have moved in and are terrorizing the neighborhood. Hardly a relaxing, carefree retirement.Forman's depictions of the petty posturing and backstabbing involved in country club politics are literally laugh out loud funny. When Eddie's not dealing with "Boca Bullies" ("Men who simply hadn't mellowed with age. They maintained an aggressive attitude and turned every situation into a confrontation."), he's juggling "Boca Babes" ("An unmistakable combination of a bad attitude, chic clothing, beauty-parlor magic, and surgical surprises."). And Eddie tackles it all with a matter-of-fact demeanor and wicked sense of humor that turns the little corner of Boca Raton he's settled in on its ear.The only slight quibble I had with the book is that the ending was a tad on the feelgood side for my tastes. Not that I'm against happy endings per se, but I found this one to be just a little over-the-top. Then again, I am admittedly a bit on the bloodthirsty side in my normal reading, so it could just be me. And that's not to say there isn't plenty of action and some downright nasty violence in Boca Knights. Eddie has a very deep-seated sense of honor and justice, with an almost compulsive need to fight - literally if needed - for the little guy and those who can't fight for themselves. His encounter with the Russian mafia thugs in the meth lab is as explosive and brutal as you'll find in any crime fiction.With Boca Knights author Steve Forman has introduced a wonderfully original character into the modern crime fiction / private investigator genre. Though he's a sixty-year-old, arthritic, Jewish retiree, Eddie Perlmutter is also a tough talking, wise cracking, former cop who's still ready, willing and able to throwdown when needed. I for one hope Eddie keeps kicking ass and making me laugh until I'm receiving AARP mailings. Long live the Boca Knight.

    I have just begun the 3rd story by Steven Forman and hope he is busy writing, typing or dictating his next 300 books....I will read every 1 of them.Funny? You bet! Relatable...especially his take on the Seniors in Florida? Absolutely! My Parents eventually settled in an area close to Boca and every street, road and shopping area is authentic...as are the folks who live there. Here's to YOU, Boca Knight!

    Loved this book. Good adventure and detective action which moved the story well. His ongoing input from Mr. Johnson was humorous and entertaining. There were times I laughed out loud . I enjoyed myself!!

    The author nails Boston's mid-century North End. His grasp of Southeast Florida's gated golf community politics is not only accurate but very funny. Boca Knights should be required reading for Anyone considering a home or career behind the gates of a Boca Raton country club.

    I am eagerly waiting for the next installment , also liked Eddie the Kid by the same author. Another good Geezer-Lit is "Don't Ever Get Old" by Daniel Friedman.

  • By Brian Mabin on July 20, 2017

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book, as it was a fast moving and fun story! I was looking for something entertaining to read that wasn't so dark as many murder mysteries and drama novels can be.I would recommend this to anyone over 40 and in need of a fast, light, and highly engaging characters and story!

    A new favorite book for me! Funny, smart, very masculine but still a great read and a great take on a slice of Florida.

    It was a good read, but most important to me, it was funny! Nice break from your cut & dried detective stories.
