SIMON LASH, Private Detective by Frank Orubr

SIMON LASH, Private Detective

Email this review


Orubr is an old hand at this, but he has given us a new detective this time. A very belligerent ex-criminal lawyer, whose avocation is American frontier history. He takes -- reluctantly -- the case of a disappearing husband of an old flame, and unearths plenty of juicy bits of evidence as he goes into the matter. The old mink racket, a bank swindle, a faked identity (the missing man is not the husband -- but the very much alive husband is back of it all). Plenty of chasing around, a good auto race, two more killings -- interspersed with emotional eruptions, a complete recovery from the pangs of old love, and a conclusion, which leaves him still fighting mad, but the owner of sixteen new source books on his hobby.
