We featured the first in this funny, sharp, action packed and quirky series when we discovered it in 2009. Called 'The Golden Pig ' it followed the adventures of Hymie Goldman, failed electrician turned defective detective. Well, Hymie is back in Revenge of the Red Square a hilarious sequel and a comic tour de force.
In the world of Hymie Goldman nothing is ever as it seems. Hired by a man with no face to find a man with no name, he soon becomes embroiled in a bitter feud between two rival organisations intent in destroying each other and the planet. Can he save the world? Will he ever get anywhere with the luscious Ruby? And where did he leave that Quark bomb? These are just some of the questions he will surely never answer.

Praise for the Penny Brother's writing
'I fell in love with Hymie Goldman within the first few pages. His story is funny, exciting and touching all at the same time. I found myself laughing and yet felt engrossed, and I have to admit that I allowed myself a breath of relief when I realised that as a detective Hymie Goldman has a lot to learn from Hercule Poirot.' David Suchet OBE
If The Golden Pig is the first of the comic adventures of Hymie Goldman Electrician turned Defective Detective I look forward to many more. A laugh a minute, farcical story and a great read. June Whitfield CBE
