Brother, can you spare a dime?
The latest adventure from Pinky, Bear, and the enigmatic Flo.

Helmut said, "Damn it, listen to me. I'm at Ludwig's home and I'm standing in a pool of his blood!"

And so his old school chum, Helmut, screws up Bear's planned afternoon of beer and baseball with his Bo-sox.

The latest Pinky and Bear adventure takes the dynamic trio from the Atlantic coast to Beijing, China, to oxygen deprived Lhasa,Tibet, to find the murderer and a tiny dime worth a cool two million dollars.

The adventure includes sky goddesses, bat lollipops, quotes from Shakespeare and Confucius, Flo's devious ways, and ends with a prize winning cliff hanger that defies all logic even if you think you know the crafty Pinky Delmont.

Last week I was staring at my keyboard when my thoughts strayed from the next Pinky and The Bear mystery to what famous actor could play Pinky in the Brother, can you spare a dime?, blockbuster movie?

And who would play the parts of Bear, Flo, and and do not forget Willow?
After you have finished reading the book, send me your picks for the four roles. I will post them as they come in and eventually select a winner.

Reviews of book four, The Tartan Shroud

I have had the pleasure of reading Pinky and Bear mysteries before and they are a treat! I was excited to read the latest caper, The Tartan Shroud. There are belly laughs, suspense, and more in this memorable book The Scottish setting was mesmerizing and how the characters cope with parts of it were downright hilarious. If you enjoy great suspense with memorable characters, pick this series up. It is well worth the read!
The Minding Spot Review

If you enjoy good suspense full of odd and absurd red herrings you will find this to be an enchanting find. If you love good comedic wit and interplay among comical pundits, each with the understanding they are more intelligent that the other, you will love Pinky and Bear. Bear is a great hearted man, gruff but kind, and enamored of his family. Pinky is the quintessential lothario, in love with the idea of love, and remains friends with all his erstwhile conquests, including ex-wives. This is a fast paced and funny work, entertaining and full of charm, a work of art.

I love books written by Ken Dalton. They are always a great romp of a mystery. Not just a who done it but a get on and ride with the wind story line. This time we took off and went all the way to Scotland. Running this way and that while still making forward progress seems to be the way Ken weaves a good story. I promise you it is all worth it. Every single time. Always!
