From the pages of Super Detective comes a McGowan for Hire Mystery
From the pen of Roger Torrey author of 42 Days for Murder, and mysteries for Black Mask, Private Detective, Detective Story, Dime Detective, and similar magazines comes another hard-boiled tale of mystery and deceit.
This detective's assignment was a tough one. They wanted him to find a man in New York without giving him a description, without offering any information! They gave him a name. And that was all...
McGowan went into his office to find three Western Union telegrams awaiting him. The first one read:
PLEASE LOCATE ARNOLD QUIRES YOUR CITY STOP KEEP INVESTIGATION SECRET STOP WILL PAY CUSTOMARY FEE AND EXPENSES STOP WIRE REPORT WHEN AVAILABLE STOP FIRST NATIONAL BANK AND TRUST COMPANY RICHFIELD TEXAS
The other telegrams also requested Arnold Quires to be found. What intriguing situation could arise for three separate clients to each be seeking the same man?
"It made a nice little problem. All I had to do was find a man I'd never heard of before. With no description of him to help -- no idea of his tastes or circumstances or anything else about him. Outside of a suspicion that he came from Texas, and that was pure conjecture, I didn't have a thing to go on and I wasn't in the least hopeful about results. But Terrance McGowan's reputation as the best private investigator in the City wasn't made for nothing."
