Part-time detective/con artist Dean Wardlow Rock made his living as a purported fortune teller. In fact, his business card proclaims his expertise at pedomancy: “Fortunes Devined from the Soles of Your Feet… Learn the Secrets of Love, Hate, Riches.” Ironically, The Dean’s foresight never anticipated the mysteries he’d soon become embroiled in. Apparently an eccentric living encyclopedia—always using archaic words in casual conversation—this is actually a facade behind which The Dean operates in order to solve the case at hand.

The Dean is one of the best series to grace the pages of Dime Detective.
