“With a chip on his shoulder and more than his share of attitude, the protagonist presents himself as a force to be reckoned with and immediately captured my interest.” – Chantal Boudreau, author/illustrator
* Author nominated for Best Short Story of 2011 by Preditors & Editors Readers Poll.
Fans of funny detective stories, meet Maynard Soloman, gal-damn detective. Some would say he’s crusty, profane and clueless. But if you ask him, he solves the world’s problems one case at a time. Once you experience his 1930s-style of doing business in a 21st century world, you just might agree.
In this misadventure, Maynard wraps his arms around the War on Drugs. Or is the war wrapping itself around his beloved Winnebago RV and threatening to bust down the door? Either way, the Ol’ Badger will solve this business of the War on Drugs once and for all.
