Only 9 stories, but three are novelettes adding up to about 75,000 words, and six short stories brings it up to 95,000.

After the mammoth C S Montanye collection I posted earlier, ("This murder's On Me"), I found another handful of Montanye hard-boiled yarns and a light romantic story; which are in here.

Wadsworth Camp's yarn is an adventure/crime story dating from 1915, which reappeared in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine after WW2, a tribute to its timelessness. Charles G Booth was another hard-boiled author for Black Mask and others, but is now forgotten, apart from a single long novelette. Gwyn Evans throws in a brave stab at a Edgar Wallace style villain.
