BEARSTONE BLACKIE claims to be the world's first black bear detective, and he's one cocky bruin. This scene form early in his debut, Bearstone Blackie, Detective (2017), pretty much sums up what you're getting yourself into:
"Bear With Us."
Ya get it?
If that sorta stuff tickles your fancy, you're going love this book, a collection of whimsical short short stories featuring Blackie, occasionally aided and abetted by his Gal Friday, Beartina.
Sure, the puns can get a little grizzly, but Blackie's heart is in the right place. And a bear may be just what the (moderately) mean streets really need.
It's something the author, Ray Pace, a reporter in both print and radio from the Big Island of Hawaii, is counting on. As he puts it, "Bearstone may be up for a second outing or even a third, but right now there's just so many cannoli in the world and so little time. The lad does get hungry."
Some Beantown eyes...
