"From the New York Times bestselling author of Meddling Kids comes a brilliantly subversive and comic thriller celebrating noir detectives, Die Hard, Fast & Furious, and the worst case of sibling rivalry. You'll find their names on the frosted glass of a dingy office in Fisherman's Wharf. Adrian and Zooey Kimrean. Private Eyes. A.Z., as they are collectively known, are twin brother and sister. He's pure misanthropic logic, she's sloppy hedonistic creativity. He's Sherlock Holmes, the Cumberbatch version. She's Ace Ventura. A.Z. have been locked in mortal battle since they were in utero...which is tricky because they, very literally, share one single body. Still with me? One body, two pilots. The mystery and absurdity of how Kimrean functions, and how they subvert every plotline, twist, explosion, and gunshot--and confuse every cop, neckless thug, cartel boss, ninja, and femme fatale--in the book is pure Cantero magic. Someone is murdering the sons of the ruthless drug cartel boss known as the Lyon in the biggest baddest town in California--San Carnal. The notorious A.Z. Kimrean must go to the sin-soaked, palm-tree-lined streets of San Carnal, infiltrate the Lyon's inner circle, and find out who is targeting his heirs, and while they are at it, rescue an undercover cop in too deep, deal with a plucky young stowaway, and stop a major gang war from engulfing California. They'll face every plot device and break every rule Elmore Leonard wrote before they can crack the case, if they don't kill each other (themselves) first. This Body's Not Big Enough for Both of Us is a mind-blowing, gender-bending, genre-smashing romp through the entire pantheon of action and noir. Bad Boys II meets Hannah-Barbara meets Rick and Morty...it can only be Edgar Cantero"--"a comic, subversive celebration of noir detective novels, Die Hard, Fast & Furious, and sibling rivalry"--… (mere)

Have to say, I had a love/hate relationship with this book. There are times it is simply brilliant and funny and exactly what I was hoping for.

But there are spots where all the irreverent wink wink self-indulgence just becomes a little too much. I enjoy intelligent humour, and I don't even mind if the author intrudes for a specific purpose, but there were things in this one—certain phrases and such—that completely popped me out of the story and made me start thinking of Cantero's writing process.

I really enjoyed Meddling Kids but I feel like, in this one, Cantero's editor told him that all that fun stuff that worked so well in that last book? Yeah, amp that shit up to eleven!

It was just a bit too much.

Still, I enjoyed the convoluted story and most of the humour. ( )

This Body's Not Big Enough For The Both of Us by Edgar Cantero and narrated by January LaVoy is a snarky, witty, clever, and funny book! The opening prologue had me laughing but confused at first. Was this person mentally ill or what? Then as the book started it's explained that they are brother and sister joined together sharing a body and brain! It is hilarious! They are Private Investigators where the brother is calm natured and a genius Sherlock Holmes type. The sister is wild, sex crazed, and no control or filter! No one wants her on the cases but they all want the brother! This is one of these cases and I giggled all the way through it! It is funny, inappropriate at times that makes it even funnier, very witty, and full of action! Great characters and plot! I want more of this series! I hope he writes more of these PI siblings!
The narration was so good! It's not easy to do comedy and make it funny but she did! I think I enjoyed it more by hearing it from this narrator than if I had just read it myself. ( )

It took me a while to get into this book, but about a third of the way through, I was hooked.

This book is a fun, crime noir featuring Private Investigators Adrien and Zooey Kimrean, who are two different people but share the same body. It’s hard to explain this book because the plot is crazy but in a good way. Edgar Cantero is becoming one of my go to authors. ( )

This book is so much fun. It's noir with a twist - the detective is actually two siblings who share one body. The book is funny and zany and creative and empathetic and diverse and wonderful and delightful.

I listened to the audiobook. It's a tough book to read, but January Lavoy tackles it with aplomb and really brings it to life. ( )

Kudos to Edgar Cantero for his ingenious creation of two PI's that are polar opposites but yet share the same body in "This Body's Not Big Enough for Both of Us". ( )
