Will purchased it, gutted it, re-decorated and furnished it, and opened it up this past February, with its new name: The Merry Cobbler. I've eaten there the past two evenings, & hope to one more evening, before I rendezvous with some friends, coming over from America, for a few days, when we rent a car and travel across different parts of Ireland. This particular pub and restaurant is located in Ringsend/Irishtown, in northern Dublin.

For Detective Brady Kinkaid life has been pretty good lately. The small town life of Early, Michigan suits him well and he likes working in the Police Department. He has turned fifty and despite minor concerns about his age is handling himself well. Then there is the fact that he has found love in the form of his fellow Detective, Alice Drinker. While both are very happy, neither one is entirely sure of the other's actions, since both have been burned so badly before. The death of someone will once again have a lasting impact on both of them and those they know.

As students and staff at small Brewster State in the neighboring town of Brewster get really to celebrate making the final sixteen of the current NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, their mascot is found dead. Professor Didi Terry, who doubled as the school's mascot, has been found hung in the school's bell tower. But, whoever set it up to appear as a suicide botched it badly. It was murder and Detective Brady begins to work the case. So too does Geraldine Pozy, ace reporter for the local paper, the "Early Eagle."

Before long, against a backdrop of small town politics and the basketball tournament, Geraldine and Brady begin to uncover clues from their opposite positions in the case that point towards a possible suspect. They aren't the only ones and soon a killer has to take matters in hand once again to cover up the original crime. But cover-ups and taking care of the messy little details can get easily complicated.

Everyone is back in this cozy style mystery, which follows "On The Chopping Block." The romance between Alice and Brady continues, as does the one between Geraldine and Lincoln despite the occasional stumbles in each relationship. So too does the author's ability to keep readers guessing the identity of the mastermind which is hidden skillfully right to the end. Fans of this series won't be disappointed in this latest installment and new readers will enjoy this tale of murder in a small town against the backdrop of politics and sports.

Bobby Jaye Allen's latest book, The Merry Mascot brings back a familiar cast of characters.

We find Brady Kincaid now working as a detective in the city of Early,having given up his job as Chief of Security at Lombardy Teacher's College. He is ably assisted by Alice Drinker,his new partner both on and off the job.After a few false starts, Brady has at last found romance.

The story begins when the body of the Brewster State College Mascot, The Brewster Rooster is discovered hanging from the bell tower. What looks like suicide at first, is soon designated as murder.

In the course of the investigation Brady adds to his frequent flyer account as he travels to several cities across the country tracking down leads. He discovers that the Mascot, Didi Terry has an unusual background and Olympic dreams which were never fulfilled.

The star reporter for the Early Eagle Newspaper, Geraldine Pozy is very much in evidence, picking locks, and gathering information along with the police. She does share her findings with Brady so could be considered more of a help than a hindrance. Personally I feel that she has missed her calling and would be much happier as a detective rather than a reporter.

The kidnapping of Mary Canova , administrative assistant at Brewster State, and the ruthless murder of another key character, leads us in several directions at once. You will find enough red herrings to keep you guessing right up to the end.
"the Merry Mascot" is the fourth murder mystery in a series written by Bobby Jaye Allen. We learn in the first chapter that Brady Kincaid has officially joined Early, Michigan's detective squad and is partnered with Alice, who loves him as much as he loves her.Meanwhile, in the neighboring village of Brewtser, the college mascot is found hanging in the school's bell tower. This book might have been a normal, everyday police procedural with plenty of suspects and the killer revealed in the final chapter. But, the author injected an element that might be questionable to some readers--the discovery that the victim had not quite completed the transition from male to becoming a female. I found the author's handling of this delicate subject to be sympathetic and forthright.The story line also follows the Brewster State basketball team's fortunes participating in the pinnacle of college competitions, the NCAA tournament. The author knows the sport and furnished a wonderful account of the games, the players and coaches.Once again, the author provides originality and humor with a collection of malapropisms. This book ends on a romantic note and I'm left wondering where Brady Kincaid will go from here. "the Merry Mascot" is another "page-turner;" that is, a book that's nearly impossible to put down until the last sentence has been read.This mystery richly deserves all Five Stars.
Our reading group, Once Around the Mall, has read all four Brady Kincaid mysteries and enjoyed each one thoroughly. We had a long, rather loud discussion about "the Merry Mascot" and how to rate it. The consensus is the author, Bobby Jaye Allen, did an excellent job making the reader sympathetic to the mascot's sexuality. For some in our group, transgendering is a touchy subject, though everyone agrees the author handled it with tact and sensitivity. Let me make it clear there's far more to this story than the merry mascot's life and death. The major portion of the story is a police procedural with a generous dose of romance. We voted Five Stars for "the Merry Mascot."
