Victor is as crooked as Charlie is straight, and he'll do anything to make a quick buck, including running up to Montreal to collect a suspicious suitcase for a miserly old man. But when he decides to farm the job out to a bumbling black belt accomplice, all hell breaks loose -- and the fun begins. In a slapstick, sinister farce with an unforgettable cast that includes Vic's main squeeze, Rosemary, an Amazon stripper named Sheila, and two kneecapping thugs called Steel and Clover, Victor and Charlie embark on the trail of every deadly sin from dirty money to outright murder. Once again Charlie Bradshaw and his hapless henchmen provide what the Boston Sunday Globe calls "jaunty and colorful, good tongue-in-cheek fun" -- and what fans of the series have come to expect....

    SARATOGA STRONGBOX – Okay-Dobyns, Stephen – 10th book of Charlie Bradshaw seriesExcept that I have one more book on my TBR shelf by him, this would probably be the last I’d read. The characters, both the good guys and the bad guys are almost slap stick, and if Vic refers to his lady friend one more time as the “Queen of Softness”…. The books in the Saratoga series are light and quick—really too much so for my taste.

    This was a fun read. The protagonist, near-60 Vic Plotz, is a likeable, real guy, and it's easy to appreciate the friendship he has with level-headed Charlie. I enjoy the way he loves his 'Queen of Softness' and how both he and her are 'larger' people...and that's ok. Witty chatter from Vic moves this mystery along that involves counterfeit money, blackmail, the mob, love, betrayal, and friendship. I will be reading others from the series.

    Dobyns is a poet, which is probably why his prose is so lovely. I adore the shameless Vic, and his Queen of Softness. This is a Charlie Bradshaw mystery.
