T.T. Mann, Ace Detective by Gerald W. McFarland is a fun throwback to the days of film noir, with private eyes, gangsters and femmes fatales. The main character, Thin Mann, along with his brother, Flat Mann, brings a touch of fantasy to these cozy mysteries as one is as thin as a garden hose and the other is as flat as electrical tape. Through each story, Thin faces thugs, dastardly husbands, and nosy relatives with the help of Flat and his secretary, Rosie, the love of Thin’s life.
The three short stories in T.T. Mann, Ace Detective are an enjoyable read with touches of humour and ‘olden day’ atmosphere. Author Gerald W. McFarland creates interesting characters caught in intriguing dilemmas that unfold with entertaining charm. They bring to mind such stories as Who Framed Roger Rabbit (without the cartoon characters) and A Prairie Home Companion. These are simply pleasant mysteries with a bit of action and a thin man who never gives up on a case, though he isn’t so great with women. The unique quirk of making such a thin character, who only weighs 22lbs, an accomplished martial arts student should be weird but the author skillfully makes it work.
McFarland does a great job mixing these detective tales with enough twists and noir charm to build lighthearted mysteries that make for a pleasurable read on a Sunday afternoon. I would recommend T.T. Mann, Ace Detective to anyone who is looking for something entertaining but not too heavy, much in line with the early Agatha Christie stories or Father Brown Mysteries.”
