Ken Daltonabout this book: Northern Nevada's sophisticated but unscrupulous defense attorney, Pinky Delmont, and Bear Zarbarte, his sort-of-honest investigator travel all the way to Scotland to solve the murder of a teenage girl. Pinky's favorite ex-wife, Willow, convinces Pinky, Bear, and Flo, Bear’s busty girlfriend, to fly across the Atlantic to solve the murder. Flo, the intelligent one of the three is the driving force behind flushing out the killer.
The mystery unfolds from two viewpoints: the lawyer, Pinky and the investigator, Bear who are never close to being politically correct but occasionally the two stumble across a noble motive.
This was a great story full of mystery and mayhem. I really enjoyed this book and loved that it took place in another country instead of typical mysteries that take place in the United States.
This book is fast paced, full of humor, local flavor and just plain fun. I enjoyed the author's style of writing and I hope to read more of his work. A wonderful book to curl up to.
Bear is a great hearted man, gruff but kind, 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. Entertaining and full of charm, you will find the story as well as the combatants to be a work of art.
