  • What fun we have boys and girls when we take another trip to Columbus, Ohio home of the Buckeyes and my favorite teddy bear of a lawyer Winston Barchrist III! In Dead But Still ticking dirty little secrets are turning up everywhere Winston is digging. It all starts when his assistant the lovely Miranda opens the morning post to find a money order for five million dollars(I know what I would do!)from fellow lawyer Robert Steinglass who wants to meet with Winston. Robert fails to show up at the ap [...]



  • This not a great novel but nevertheless it was great fun for me to read. The plot was quite ridiculous and convoluted. I enjoyed it because it takes place in my city of Columbus and my little city of Bexley. Many of the characters are modeled after local people or combinations of people and that's what made it so fun for me.


  • Disclaimer: I received this book as a giveaway on the premise that I would review it.Warren Barchrist III may have won a big case in the last volume, but his name is still strongly associated with being sued by the Securities & Exchange Commission. So his law business hasn’t really picked up, and he’s considering closing up. Until, that is, he receives a five million dollar cashier’s check from elegant gay lawyer Robert Steinglass, with a promise to explain later. Before that can happ [...]


  • I won this book from . I liked the plot and characters in this book. At some points there were too many paragraphs describing a place where they were or the background into different terrorist groups. Overall this could have been a 3 or 4 except the editing was terrible.For example: p. 47 "close association with a the Ukrainian". Should be 'a' or 'the'p.73 "tell her its business". should be "it's"p 86 "there a very big family" when it should be "They're"p. 120 "strapped to his waste" should be ' [...]


  • I was lucky enough to receive a copy of Dead But Still Ticking through , and it proved to be an intriguing read. From the beginning Selcer captures the reader's interest by having the book's hero receive a mysterious check for five million dollars. The person who sent him the check promises to explain but dies before he gets the chance to. Winston is not your typical detective being an overweight lawyer however I found that a refreshing change of pace. Winston stubbles into this case blind, but [...]


  • This was a very complicated book. As I was finishing it, I was also watching Jeopardy and a question came up with the answer being Polodium, which I had just learned about from the story. Small world. The book was better than the blurb and I enjoyed it. I detected only one error, a common one of mixed up homonyms, but this one was humorous because Mr. Selcer used "bear" instead of "bare" to describe a woman's legs. That is a hairy visual. Most books I read have more errors, so this was a pleasur [...]


  • I won this in a GR First Reads giveaway. On the whole, not a bad story. I found the protagonist to be likeable, despite his preoccupation with his weight. There were some misspellings and some uses of the wrong word (think hear for here), but they were bearable. However, there was a bit too much going on for one story. Was a bit hard to keep track of. The stories were all pretty much wrapped up, but might have been a bit better without so much going on at once. Would consider another in the seri [...]


  • Won this book from for me to review. Turned out to be a decent mystery but too many situations going on. Yes, I read the entire book but came away with too much to figure out at the end. However, the author does explain the out come of each character at the very end of the book, thank goodness for that. The book was written well. It was interesting but like I said ---- too many situations going on.
