Well, good old Brett has made an appearance on the Thrilling Detective website -- Has his own page, too, as do a few other detectives such as Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, Sam Spade, Mike Shayne, Spenser -- (You get the picture.)

Brett reminds the writer of the website of 60s detective Shell Scott. It's no wonder since numerous Shell Scott novels lined the shelves of bookstores back in the day when I first made the plunge into detective fiction (as a reader, that is). Although I read only a few Shell Scott paperbacks, I can see the similiarities.

But did Shell Scott have a magnificent bushy blond mustache as does Our Hero?

Were any of those other guys blessed with the type of Adonis-like features that Brett possesses???

Could ANY of those detectives possibly wear the badge of an UNSCRUPULOUS BASTARD as proudly as the Brett-Meister does? ? ? ?

In any case, check out Brett's page --

And while you're there, you might want to also read a little bit about some of those other guys. . .

Ciao for now!

Towards the end of "DON'T MESS WITH BRETT" this little scene takes place shortly after Lola Buchanan's older sister has passed away:

(in Brett's own words, as usual)

Well, I kept my distance from Lola and her whole family over the course of the next few days. Needless to say, unscrupulous bastards are not exactly welcomed with open arms in very many places, least of all at wakes and funerals; and if Lola had been counting on leaning on me for moral support while she was in mourning over her sister’s death, she was pretty much wasting her time – especially after she took a time-out from her period of grief to inform me that, if I hadn’t attended Roxie and Clarence’s double-shower a few weeks ago, none of these people’s lives would have been ruined, and I simply told her, “Not my problem, babe. You were the one who invited me to go there with you in the first place, remember?” So, that was that! Plus, hadn’t she just finished telling me about this fantastic new boyfriend of hers on the police force? If she really needed a shoulder to cry on, then, she could always turn to Macho-Man Bailey, couldn’t she, and she could water that ugly shaved head of his with her tears all night long to the point where something might actually grow on it! Hey, after all, I did have my own agenda, and I even went out of my way at one point to tell her that, regarding her sister’s death, she should try not to let it get to her.


    “People die. It happens. Deal with it,” is what I told her, so in a sense, I was acting like a genuinely kind and caring person, wouldn’t you say?


Genuinely kind & caring?

Brett? ? ?

Well -- Maybe in the warped alternate reality known as Brett's World !!
