Joe Serpe and Bob Healy
Created by Tony Spinosa (Pseudonym of Reed Farrel Coleman)

The oilmen cometh...

Ex-NYPD detective JOE SERPE teams up with his retired internal affairs nemesis, BOB HEALY and goes into business. Or more precisely, a variety of businesses: an aptly named bar (The Odd Couple), a small long Island heating oil delivery company, and a private detective agency. Naturally, it's the PI firm that's struggling.

Serpe and Healy's creator is actually Reed Farrel Coleman, best known as the Shamus-winning creator of P.I. Moe Prager (who likewise moonlights). He's also the author of three novels featuring unorthodox investigator Dylan Klein.
