They were meek and mild looking little men, those brothers Jones. The last two in the world you’d expect to find mixed up with murder. But tracking down killers was their specialty—and a simple job like doubling for a corpse on a coffin-ride was just another night’s work for Horatio & Leander Jones.
Written by Maxwell Hawkins, the Jones Brothers series was a transitional one for Dime Detective magazine’s editorial focus, from weird menace & mysteries to the more traditional gumshoe detective story pioneered by rival magazine, Black Mask. This collection contains all six stories in the series: “Alias the Corpse,” “The Devil’s Dozen,” “Death from Down Under,” “Duchess of Death,” “Fool’s Jewels,” and “Fair and Murder.”
