The Complete Casebook of Cardigan, Volume 3: 1934-35 by Frederick Nebel is now available from Altus Press.

Frederick Nebel's unforgettable character Jack Cardigan was one of the main reasons behind the success of the legendary Dime Detective Magazine. His hard-boiled P.I. stories were a major influence to other writers of the era, yet only a handful have been reprinted since their original 44-story run eighty years ago. Volume 3 of this series contains the next 11 installments, complete and uncut, with the original illustrations by John Fleming Gould.
