Roger Torrey (1901-1946) was a prolific writer of crime fiction for magazines like Dime Detective, Black Mask, and Detective Fiction weekly, producing nearly 300 short stories and novellas, and just one novel, 42 Days for Murder (1938).

Torrey in life was as hard-boiled and as heavy a drinker, if not heavier, than his tough guy heroes. He died suddenly from alcoholic poisoning at the age of 45.
