Edger Lives
by David Beem


GENRE: Comedy, Action/Adventure



Our dork of destiny rides again!

Edger is falling for Mary, his bodyguard, kick-ass spy, and cover wife. But she’s so hopelessly out of his league, it’s clear someone’s going to get hurt. Less clear? That someone may be the Prime Minister of Australia.

When Mary confesses her desire to kill the world leader whose assassination Edger’s supposed to prevent, Edger’s superpowers pick the worst time to stop working. Without a fully functional psychic superhero, their team of spies can no longer order him to probe Mary’s mind for ill intent. The stage is set for a confrontation that threatens to strip a defenseless Edger of his loyal protector just when he needs her most.

Return to the Collective Unconscious, this time with Listerine-chugging stoners, Hollyweirdos, commie-alien-kung fu robots, one space gorilla-unicorn, and an exceedingly lovesick Vladimir Putin.

Mind your fingers and toes on page 270. Those skydiving mind-control monkeys have been known to bite!



Google the Cessna 208B Grand Caravan and you’ll learn this single-engine turbine-powered plane is among the most popular jump aircrafts in the world. The Grand Caravan model, with its 675 horsepower, has a good climb and typically seats nine passengers plus the pilot, but with the FAR Part 23 waiver, the number of passengers tops out at fourteen. The wingspan is fifty-two feet. A full tank of fuel gets you a range of 1,232 miles. The cruise speed is 214 mph. All this is Googleable. Less Googleable: the Cessna 208B Grand Caravan is exceedingly popular with the Russian skydiving mind-control chimp crowd.

These adventure-seeking chimps love the Cessna 208B Grand Caravan for its high wing and large exit door. They love to jump up and down in the back and fling poo while shrieking at the tops of their lungs. Most of all, they love the complimentary Chiquita bananas.

This group of mind-control chimps, like the others flying over northern Indiana, are wearing yellow-and-purple spandex onesies and Q-32 Thinking Caps replete with fancy blinking lights and telescoping antennas. They are well-mannered monkeys, despite their predilection for flinging poo, who’ve been taught it’s poor form to arrive at a party without a gift. For this reason, they have brought some five hundred pendant medallions between them, medallions identical to the ones adopted as the symbol of the Church of the Ladder Day Dudes.

The squadron of Cessnas banks two miles above sleepy South Bend, Indiana, in preparation for its pass over the Notre Dame campus.



This book is brilliantly written with hilarious scenes, witty comical banter, intriguing wordplay, clever pop cultural references, slick celebrity name drop allusions, keen sarcasm among characters, sharp writing, and a quirky storyline that brings it all together!

Edger is at it again!  Still the same dorky guy as last time and he’s back again to save the world!  This book is also returning with the same piercing, slapstick humor that practically has you rolling on the floor laughing with every turning page!!!

This book’s humor is anything but subtle – it basically sucker punches you in the face, then dumps a tub of molasses on you and tosses a bucket of feathers on top.  Nothing discrete here lol!

There is no reading between the lines to follow and understand these humorous scenes!  The author did a great job at allowing the reader to easily identify, consume, and enjoy the comical and satire lines.

However, there are some passages that the author wrote in a more clever and cunning stance that may at times be difficult to decipher the exact meaning of the message that the author truly intended, but not overwhelmingly hard to identify at least one meaning.  Plus, that’s what is fun about these books, you can read them multiple times and come away with a whole difficult take-away each time!

This book is also full of entertaining kick-butt and take some names kind of action!  Some of those particular scenes were quite amusing but also so vividly detailed and well-written that it made these scenes easy to picture.  And without any spoilers, I think that was such an important part of the book since the action scenes are unique and with the author being able to provide so much detail and definition it was almost like I was watching the scenes play as a movie in my head!

This book has a great storyline that flows, terrific writing style with detailed scenes, is fast paced, and keeps you completely entertained through the last page.

There are so many elements and layers to this book!  However, they all find a way to beautifully come together in the end.

This book is Book Two of the Edger Book Series.  I had not read the first book before reading this book and unfortunately, I wish I had.  There are so many references to the previous book and the characters significantly overlap.  It could technically be read on its own as a standalone.  I wasn’t completely confused or lost.  I just felt out of the loop and that I was missing lots of important information about the characters and how they got to the point at where they are when book two starts.  So, I personally would recommend reading book one, before you start book two.  Especially since the author mentions that book three is just around the corner!

If you enjoy geeking out with like-minded dorks and rooting for the underdog superhero while enjoying some mind-blowing LOL coma’s then this book is truly for you!

All in all, I really enjoyed reading this book and would absolutely recommend it!  I think all comedy, action, adventure readers will like this book too!  So, add it to your TBR List and get to reading - you won't be disappointed!

Please note that this book is strongly rated 18+ as it contains adult situations, adult language, etc.
