Gregg Taylor's love of the classic adventure stories of the golden age of radio, comics and pulp fiction are the driving passions behind the "Tales of the Red Panda" series of books. The books began as a companion piece to his popular radio adventure series "The Red Panda Adventures", heard on independant radio stations around North America and around the world as part of the Decoder Ring Theatre podcast, and have gone on to reach new audiences who love the two-fisted adventure style that recalls the work of the legends of mystery and adventure. Like the classic Hero Pulps that inspired them, the Tales of the Red Panda books can be read in any order, with or without knowledge of the radio series.

My favourite hard boiled detective of all time!
Now I finally know how Black Jack and Trixie met, it's so good I wish Greg could write a follow up.
Keep up the good work.

Gregg Taylor does it again. A fun read even if you are not familiar with the Black Jack audio drama. Exciting and funny.

Gregg Taylor's writing is fast-paced, witty, fun and exciting. This is the story of the first meeting between Jack Justice, hard-boiled private eye and Trixie Dixon, Girl Detective. If you're a fan of the audio drama, this is a must read. If you're not, this is still a fun and exciting 1940s detective story.
The "Taylorian Banter" is rapid-fire and witty as our his-and-hers detective begin on opposite ends of a blackmail/divorce case that spirals into a murder investigation and then continues to grow.
Taylor moves fluidly through the alternating first-person narration, while constantly moving the story forward, yet never leaving the reader confused about which perspective they are experiencing. That can't have been an easy feat and hats-off to him for accomplishing it. As much as I love Taylor's Red Panda novels, I honestly believe this is his best work to date.
