From the '30s through the '50s, madmen, mayhem, and murder ruled the malignant world of the thrilling detective pulps. To the rescue came a succession of intrepid investigators fearing nothing but injustice. These were the Thrilling Detective Heroes. Some of their names are legend in pulpdom. Most of them remain to be discovered in this collection of colorful tales taken from Thrilling's flagship detective pulps, Thrilling Detective and Popular Detective. Each story features a series hero in one of his most entertaining exploits. The detectives range from the flamboyant figures of the '30s to the hardboiled, hard-bitten private dicks of the late '40s.
