BOOK REVIEW: LOOSE COINS

Hensley & Townsend, Loose Coins Last week I mentioned a novel Harry Waterson sent to me: "Loose Coins by Hoe Hensley and Guy Townsend (St. Martin's press, 2000). It was a busy week and I assigned the book to our staff reviewer, my father-in-law Kenneth "Red" Robinson. He's my hero - while I fight traffic and the rat race of work every day, he stays home watching TV and reading books. So I gave him the book.

He finished it in a day. Always a master of the obvious, Red sez, "It's really good. You'd like it - it's about coins."

Brief, but to the point. His thumbs up is good enough for me. Look for it at your local library, flea market, or garage sale!
