Spinetingler Award-Winning Blog Reviews Maynard Soloman

A fantastic review of 4 Funny Detective Stories - Starring Maynard Soloman from Detectives Beyond Borders:

 

"Maynard Soloman is an American archetype — solo man. Get it? — roaming the heartland alone, free of emotional commitments, fighting for the little guy, his only goals self-preservation and righting wrongs.


"Except he and the stories in which he appears are funnier than all that. His steed is a decaying Winnebago motor home on which a vandal has spray-painted that Maynard Soloman Investigation Services SUKS!, and Soloman is on the run not from outlaws or marauding Comanches, but from unpaid medical bills.

 

"The titles of the 4 Funny Detective Stories — Starring Maynard Soloman say much about author Benjamin Sobieck's targets: Maynard Soloman Solves the War on Drugs, Maynard Soloman Fixes Social Security and Eats a Pony, Maynard Solomon & The Job-Nabbin' Illegal Immigrants, and, in a story that comes as close to heart-warming as the old cuss gets, Maynard Soloman Proves Santa Claus is Real.

Thank you, Dana! Peter's also got a good sense of humor. He's the one who came up with the Maynard vs. Miss Marple mud wrestling concept.

Peter is a good man and discriminating reader. Congratulations. I have downloaded a copy and have it queued up to read. Good luck with the book.
