About the Author:

Jim Tully (June 3, 1886 - June 22, 1947) has been credited with originating the hard-boiled writing style practiced later by such authors as Dashiell Hammett. In his life he’s been a dishwasher, chainmaker, boxer, newspaper reporter, tree surgeon, circus handyman, and Hollywood press agent.

Review:

"With Dashiell Hammett, Tully was one of the founders of the hard-boiled school of writers in the U. S." -- Charles Willeford

“If there is a writer in America today who can lay hold of mean people and mean lives and tear their mean hearts out with more appalling realism, his work is unknown to me.” -- George Jean Nathan
