Richard Yancey The Highly Effective Detective.

If you are looking for something slightly different to read, this one came recommended to me by Elizabeth (via Carol). As she said, it did take me awhile to get into it, e.g. put up with the bumbling characters, but it was fun. It should make for an enjoyable summer read too. Teddy Ruzak begins his first case, a hit and run killing of a gaggle of goslings. This is a debut series novel, so if it suits you there will be more! Many people who like Donald E Westlake’s novels like this.
I had previously read Something Missing by Matthew Dick, which was more hilarious, about a thief, so that might be why this one didn’t sizzle for me (but it didn’t fizzle either, just seemed a bit unlikely! One more bumbling detective.).
