Ashland author cooks up a detective novel to start a series

The detective is British and uses deductive reasoning. No, not him.

His name sounds French and he dresses well. No, not him either.

Pignon Scorbion is the name of the crime investigator, the invention of Ashland novelist Rick Bleiweiss.

In 1910 Haxford, England, the detective embarks on a major case, in Pignon Scorbion & the Barbershop Detectives.

The book is published by Blackstone, where Bleiweiss is also an executive. He joins us to talk about his book and his long career in entertainment.
