A pathfinder and groundbreaker of the hard-boiled school of detective fiction, a prolific contributor to the legendary Black Mask magazine during the 1930s, as well as Dime Detective, Detective Story, and many other titles, Roger Torrey (1909-1946) has sadly garnered only minimal recognition in the more than sixty years since his death, missing out on the paperback boom and the revival that many of his contemporaries enjoyed. This first major collection of his hard-boiled crime work brings together 11 stories (10 reprinted here for the first time), including four novellas—“Two Dead Men,” “Dance Act,” The Platinum Peke,” “Bodyguard,”—and seven shorter works. Also included is the first-ever bibliography of the fiction of Roger Torrey.
