It's always nice to revisit familiar characters I've grown to love. We've got J. Pincus Delmont - or Pinky - that narcissistic, blowhard of a lawyer or enjoys nothing more than fleecing his clients in order to afford his favorite blend of expensive coffees. Then there's Bear, the loveable oaf of brawn and little brain who likes nothing more than beer, baseball and staring at Flo's boobs.

Who's Flo you ask? She's the feminine side of the dynamic duo with the smart-as-a-whip mind and equally smart

Abbot has his Costello, George Burns has Gracie, Dean Martin had Jerry Lewis, and so we have a new comedic pair in Ken Dalton’s characters, Flo and Bear. Readers will love them. Bear is a big, loveable, detective working for J. Pincus Delmont. Flo is Bear’s girl. She’s street smart and is the brains in the duo. Pinky is a big shot defense lawyer, and is Bear and Flo’s boss. In Brother, Can you spare a Dime? Pinky is trying to get his favorite ex-wife, Willow, to remarry him. Willow is a prosecut ...more

A couple years ago I read and reviewed The Big Show Stopper by Ken Dalton and I thoroughly enjoyed the zany detective tale. The next year I read The Tartan Shroud and found it equally entertaining. So, when I was asked to review the latest book in the Pinky and Bear series, I happily agreed. And I wasn’t surprised that I enjoyed it just as much.

Dalton’s detective stories are light hearted romps with snappy dialogue, lots of action and a cast of outrageous characters who often upend a few stereot

Someone has killed Helmut’s paraplegic brother Ludwig and stolen his rare dime, a coin collectors would each give their eye teeth to get. Who did it? Was it Helmut, who, without thinking fingered the gun and left a bloody footprint at the scene when he discovered his brother’s body? Was it the sneaky, unscrupulous coin dealer in Wilmington, who was ready to steal a widow’s husband’s prized coins? Or, was it the shady numismatist, who believes in a free Tibet, who takes off to far reaches of that ...more

What do I want to share with you about Brother, can you spare a dime? Well it starts off with his personal autograph to me and thanks so much Ken. I am doing good and holding on at -100 lbs right now. It feels fantastic. I wonder if it feels as good as having a book published feels? Alright enough about me, about the book, Pinky, Bear and Flo. Wow, I feel like a world traveler after reading this. Thanks for putting in the research from Tibet. So much I did not know and found really interesting. ...more
