Hulbert Footner’s hot-paced novels of crime are, as one leading critic has remarked, “among the many excellent things that come out of America”, and he has got a grandly dramatic situation for his new one.

Neill didn’t hold with his girl Janet running around with Prescott Fanning. He reckoned Fanning wasn’t straight and said so, but you know what girls are. . . . So Neill had to prove his words, and in doing so found trouble soon enough. Janet went off with Fanning, and the next time Neill saw her he found her in a faint with blood on her cheek, a revolver by her side, and Fanning dead at her feet. After that it was a question of the fox hunting with the hounds, and there’s suspense and excitement at every turn.

Author Bio for Footner, Hulbert

Author Image

Hulbert Footner (1879–1944) was a Canadian writer of non-fiction and detective fiction.

His most successful creation was the beautiful and brilliant Madame Rosika Storey and her plain assistant who explains the evolving solutions to her boss’ cases. His Madame Storey mysteries fit the flapping 1920s like the long lizard gloves that graced her arms and did well supporting his traveling family’s lifestyle. His Rosika Storey cases appeared in Argosy All-Story Weekly every year from 1922 through 1935.--Wikipedia.
