Product Details


“A terrific masterstroke of period detective fiction” - Pop Kernal 

“Aspiring novelist Morgan DeWitt. A fat man who won’t identify himself appears at Brass’s Manhattan office and leaves an envelope to be opened by Brass only. When Brass opens it, he finds a series of photographs of prominent people in compromising positions, including a U.S. senator, a state judge, a philanthropist, and a department store magnate. When Brass dispatches reporter Billy Fox to tail the anonymous deliveryman, Billy winds up with his throat cut. Holding himself responsible, Brass sets about to solve the killing, aided by Billy’s widow and DeWitt. While the very mobile and social Brass is not an obvious stand-in for Rex Stout’s Nero Wolfe, his way of speaking, his selectively straightforward dealings with the police, and his rapport with DeWitt bear some resemblances to Stout’s reclusive genius and bode well for future series entries.” – Publisher’s Weekly  

“From the first sentence to the final wrap-up this one is a real winner. Don’t miss it.” - Noir Journal

“Channeling the sort of fast-talking quippy urban mystery style of Rex Stout and Ellery Queen circa the late 1940s” - Comic Book Resources
