Total Pulp Experience. These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook and features every story, every editorial, and every column of the original pulp magazine.
A complete book-length murder mystery novel in each pulp magazine... plus a couple of short stories to round out the magazine. That's what Detective Book Magazine offered readers. Fiction House, publishers of Action Stories, Jungle Stories, Planet Stories and others, first published Detective Book Magazine in April of 1930. (Not to be confused with Detective Novels Magazine, which was the same concept but from a different publisher.) Detective Book Magazine was withdrawn from the newsstands in September 1931. But after researching the pulp market, Fiction House revived the magazine with the Fall 1937 issue. This time it was well received, and it stayed in publication until the Winter 1952/53 issue. It featured top-notch novels from some of pulpdom's great authors. There were 65 issues published in all. Detective Book Magazine returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

But if Dana’s gentle sister-in-law had swung the fatal monkey-wrench, few there were to blame the clear-eyed Deborah. Even Detective Lieutenant Grady could find no ire in his stormy Irish heart. But, Grady hated murder. And Lord help ’em, man or woman, demon or saint, who trespassed the Commandment of the Law.
