Unremembered Murder: The Collected Hard-Boiled Stories of Race Williams, Volume 7

Race Williams returns! Originally appearing in the pages of Black Mask Magazine, author Carroll John Daly pioneered the hard-boiled detective P.I. story and perfected the genre with his classic character, Race Williams. Apart from the novel-length Race Williams stories, these classic hard-boiled thrillers have rarely been reprinted, if ever. Volume 7 contains 16 Race Williams stories, all from 1944–55, as Daly closed out his most popular series with a bang.

It’s also prefaced by an all-new, scholarly introduction by Professor Brooks E. Hefner of James Madison University. Unremembered Murder: The Collected Hard-Boiled Stories of Race Williams, Volume 7 concludes the most important series published in years on the history of the Hard-Boiled Detective story.
