Reviews

"Who Killed the Fonz? stands tall in a field of television property revivals. James Boice deftly mixes the broad comedy of the TV series with classic noir elements, resulting in an unexpectedly emotional rollercoaster ride that's more than a novelty. Happy Days are here again!" --Andrew Shaffer, author of the New York Times bestseller Hope Never Dies: An Obama Biden Mystery
"I must confess that I never watched a single episode of Happy Days during its ten-year run, but reading Who Killed The Fonz? made me wish I had. Thank you, James Boice, not only for giving us a fast-paced, entertaining novel, but for reminding us in these corrupt Orwellian/Tower of Babel times we live in now, that not so many years ago "friending" someone meant much more than just clicking on a mouse, and that doing the right thing, no matter the risk, was looked upon as honorable and something to be proud of rather than as a sucker's game." --Donald Ray Pollock, author of The Devil All the Time and The Heavenly Table


"James Boice has achieved a magic kind of alchemy, exhuming beloved characters from our collective consciousness and gifting them with a fate, a future, and poignant inner lives. Who Killed the Fonz? is the best kind of pop-culture hypothetical -- one that imagines, with heart, wit, and smarts, what happens when the Happy Days fade and real life begins." -- Adam Sternbergh, Edgar-nominated author of The Blinds


"A wildly inventive and entertaining novel." --Booklist
"Shamelessly entertaining..." --Kirkus Reviews
"Readers yearning for simpler times will enjoy this trip down memory lane, which is as comforting as an episode of Happy Days." --Publishers Weekly
