The Fabulous Clipjoint [A Whisky Priest Book] By Fredric Brown
eBook (PDF): $3.50
“Chicago’s own Ed and Am Hunter are one of the best, and most endearing and beloved private eye teams in the genre, and Frederic Brown’s one of the best writers to ever grace the... More > genre ... Young, brash, ambitious, idealistic Ed Hunter and his uncle Am, a cheerful, chubby, streetwise ex-carny with a taste for poker, run the Hunter and Hunter Detective Agency in Chicago and it’s often Ed, wearing his heart on his sleeve, who ends up falling head over heels for some “skirt”, who leads them into some of the most entertaining, and offbeat, capers in detective fiction ... the undisputed highlight of the series is definitely the one that kicked off the series: The Fabulous Clipjoint, an alternately heart-warming and darkly grim meditation on obsession, coming-of-age and the ensuing weight of maturity.
