Join co-hosts Joan West and Sherry Knowlton for this episode of Milford House Mysteries on November 14th at 2:30 pm when they'll discuss role of Sidekicks in Detective Fiction and beyond? They'll talk about beloved detective-sidekick duos and some of the functions the role of sidekick fulfills in this genre, both from the perspective of literary device, enhancing character, and solving the fictional crime.

In books, films, television, plays, comics and cartoons, we are drawn to a main character who has a close companion who helps solve the crime, take on the bad guys, or helps the protagonist be "smarter than the average bear."  Tune in to hear Joan and Sherry discuss the enduring concept of sidekicks in fiction.
