A Fellow of Infinite Jest is the second novel in the Luke Jones series, which follows one cop’s career from rookie to retirement. Unconventional police rookie Luke Jones is back to work after reluctantly killing a man he knew and liked in order to save the life of a partner he despises. Although labeled a hero by some, he’s soon up to his old tricks—doggedly challenging authority in an organization with little tolerance for defiance, irritating peers and superiors alike by quoting Shakespeare at will, and refusing to back down when prudence dictates surrender. His latest challenge: San Diego’s cops and citizens are reeling from the horror of PSA flight 182, a Boeing 727 airliner that collided with a private Cessna 172 and crashed into the crowded neighborhood of North Park, killing 144 people. Now disaster lurks in two parts of the city, and Luke has to choose which situation needs his attention first. One could prevent his intervening to save the life of a friend. The other could get him fired—or killed.

Too Much of What the Author Knows

When I first went to listen to this book, I was thrilled because it’s written by an author who lives in the same town as me. Plus both the print and audio versions are published by local presses. Then I started to listen. Ugh. This is just more of the usual career-aggrandizing formulaic cop fiction that tries to be something more with its spurious quoting of Shakespeare, San Diego history, and random journal entries. It fails the formula, too, and the climax is too short to have any significant impact. The book comes across as a hodgepodge of approaches to writing the book and as an exercise in the author sharing what he knows about literature and history. Also, he references his Mercury Tracer often. The story is set in 1979; the Tracer didn’t hit the market until 1987. Whoops. Barry Kraft’s narration helps lift up this otherwise amateur novel.
