Meanie Mouse Versus the Orlando Operators: The Adventure Begins
Meanie Mouse was the end result of intelligence breeding in an Orlando-based research lab. Designated as the most intelligent of her line, she escapes, throwing the lab into chaos. She dies, but not before leaving some genetic material on a lab petri dish that ended up used by one of the researchers trying to save money doing an intro fertilization for his wife. One of the resulting twin children was born with a small growth, just about where a tail would be. That child was Melanie, and she would grow up to be highly smart, dedicated woman, and, in her own way, a righter of wrongs, a defender of the underdog.
Melanie, or Meanie as she gets nicknamed by her brother, gets through college and takes a job at a local law firm helping with investigations. She gets involved in tracking down the murderer of a Russian émigré, working in Orlando as a model and cheerleader for the Orlando Operators football team. Working her way though the complications of professional sports and local politics, Meanie also finds herself falling in love with Mookie, a forensic accountant that also works in the her building. Between her investigation and her developing relationship, Meanie comes across as a interesting, engaging character, even without the oddity of her birth. Meanie Mouse versus the Orlando Operators is an fun book to read, and easy to recommend.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
