Written at the height of Dime Detective’s popularity, author William E. Barrett (Lilies of the Field) penned this series featuring newspaperman Dean Culver, whose column—The Blue Barrel—dispensed gossip on the criminal underworld. No one called Dean Culver the Blue Barrel—for no one knew he was the author of the underworld-gossip column signed with that name each night in the Morning Star. If the easy-money players had ever guessed that the man who paid them off was the Walter Winchell of the other side of the law, he’d he cashing in his own checks at the first turn of the wheel, instead of those of the gamblers he spun it for.
