Meet Joe “Daffy” Dill: wisecracking reporter for the New York Chronicle. Never one to take chances, Dill made sure to pack a gun as he investigated the criminal underworld. The Dally Dill stories are hard-boiled with a touch of humor, a skill for which the author was known. Written by prolific pulp author, novelist, screenwriter, and director Richard B. Sale, the stories from this long-running series from the pages of Detective Fiction Weekly have rarely been reprinted. This edition collects the first seven stories.
