TIPPIN' HANCOCK'S HAT-Book Reviews by Tommy Hancock
TALES OF THE RED PANDA-THE MIND MASTER
By Gregg Taylor

Not this time.
TALES OF THE RED PANDA-THE MIND MASTER is the second in the TALES series from Taylor starring his Decoder Ring Theatre character, The Red Panda, and his unflappable sidekick and chauffeur, the Flying Squirrel. This book not only adds on what has already been established both via the audio programs and the first novel in the series ,but it pulls back curtains and allows readers sneak peeks into the Panda's past, letting us know a little bit of what made the man behind the mask the hero we know and cheer today.
Like the first novel, this plot is pretty simple. A new criminal force has moved into Toronto and has two goals-to charm and work his way into control of the city through the rich and mighty as well as the criminal element; and to find the one individual who may equal his very own mind centered abilities and could be the only person who might stop him. That person turns out to be The Red Panda!
FIVE OUT OF FIVE TIPS OF HANCOCK'S HAT-Pulpy goodness again. This stands up alongside its parent book and stands there very well.
