On Sunday we do beginnings, taking a look at the start of a Peter Abrahams novel, including those written under the Spencer Quinn moniker. Today, how about a little taste of something not even out yet – i.e. a sneak peek! Here’s the start of The Iggy Papers, the new short story that will come free with all preorders of Of Mutts and Men (the next Chet and Bernie). Just save your receipt!

“Well lookie here,” said Nixon Panero, the best car repair dude in the whole Valley, reaching deep into the engine of the Porsche, not the old one that had gone off a cliff or the older one that got blown up, but the oldest – meaning our new one – with the cool martini glasses on the fenders, a beautiful touch added by Rui, Nixon’s paint guy who happened to be a real artist, trained by Andy Warhol, whoever he happened to be. Or possibly someone who’d met Andy in lock-up, if I had the story straight. Nixon was also our buddy, although he’d been a perp at one time, a perp we’d collared and sent up the river, collaring perps being what we do at the Little Detective Agency, me and Bernie. It’s called the Little Detective Agency because Bernie’s last name is Little. I myself get along very well without a last name. Call me Chet, pure and simple. The river, by the way, has no water in it.

    HRH,B: I am wondering the same thing!

    Grizz and I went to the cinema today to see the 1933 classic, “King Kong.” Since we had never seen it on the big screen, it was a lot of fun! Amazing special effects for 1933!

    Happy Sunday, friends. Hope all are well and practicing safe distancing! Mom isn’t worried about getting sick, but worries about how long this is going to last.
    Will OFA be able to make his tour this summer? Is Houston on the list?

    On a side note, it’s amusing watching sportscasters trying to come up with things to report on. One was showing home videos today lol!
