More Great Moments in Detective Plumbing History!

Actor Mark Harmon on the popular CBS Series "NCIS"
Number 1 Fan Steve Here:

The other day I revealed the secret history of detectives wielding pipe wrenches.  You might think that genre (other than Georgiana Neverall) had long ago faded away.  And that's where you'd be wrong!

I bring you further pictorial evidence to the contrary. Here's actor Mark Harmon (in his role of Special Agent Gibbs) on the top-rated CBS crime series "NCIS" displaying our crime-busting tool of choice. Now, to be honest, I'm not sure if this was a current episode (I spotted this and snapped the picture back in October) or a re-run, but I'll bet if you look around Agent Gibb's house, you'll almost certainly find a pipe wrench among the boat-building tools, so we stand by our case!

Meanwhile, don't forget the new Georgia book, "Drip Dead," now in stores!

It may not be NCIS, but it's pretty popular too!  Get your copy while the getting is good!  (And drop by the hardware store and pick up a pipe-wrench too.  You know -- just for household defense and stuff!)
