Product Details


If you want a glimpse into what fiction used to be, and may be again, look no further than TURN ON THE HEAT. It is a gem.—

Erle Stanley Gardner’s Cool and Lam are fun to read about, and Turn on the Heat has them in fine form
—Bill Crider

This one is a lot of fun. Recommended. —AtomicJunkShop

A must for Gardner fans – if for no other reason than to demonstrate the breadth of Gardner’s inventive skills when he wasn’t busy with his better known lawyer/investigator.
For those a little less passionate about Perry Mason, the Cool and Lam mysteries are a wonderful example of the kinds if mysteries that helped define the genre during its formative years. 

“Gardner’s writing encapsulates what’s best about the ’40s and puts it to the page” - Criminal Element

 “It’s exciting stuff to find one of the best reads of the year is a reprint of a book that is 77 years old and hasn’t been in print for 50 years.  Run, don’t walk, to your nearest book store for one of the year’s best retro reads.” –

“The novel’s rapid-fire banter makes what is already a highly entertaining story a real gem.” – Seattle Book Review 4-star

“a welcome addition to my bookcase.” -John Koenig – Stuff I Like
