86:120 Lucky Bastard by S.G. Browne

Nick Monday is a Private Investigator in San Francisco, or at least that's what he claims as his legitimate business.  In reality, Nick is a luck poacher.  He can steal your luck with a handshake and then sell that to whoever is willing to pay his price.  Unfortunately, his skills are catching up with him now as the head of the Chinese mafia demanding his services, someone claiming to be part of the US government wanting him to tag the mafia boss with bad luck, someone claiming to be a paying client for his PI services to find out who stole her father's luck (he did it) and someone else who is the real daughter wanting him to find the person impersonating her.  And that is just going down in one day.  Some days, it really doesn't pay to get out of bed.

Normally I love S.G. Browne's novels but as much as I thought the concept was interesting and well executed, I just did not like the voice of Nick. It really put me off the story since so much of it was focusing on his hormones and women's tits rather than all the other things happening.
