"Tough, cantakerous Inspector Allhoff, who lost his legs in a shoot-out with crooks armed with a machine-gun, lives across the street from Police Headquarters in a slum tenement building and solves intricate mysteries while guzzling endless cups of coffee. Alhoff is one of the characters who graced the lively pages of Dime Detective Magazine in the heyday of that magazine's highly successful career.
"These Inspector Allhoff stories are great detective yarns, mostly developed via lively dialogue between Allhoff and his colleagues, and told in the first person by one of the colleagues. They'll keep you reading and surprise you with unexpected endings. I'm delighted to see them perpetuated in book form with some of the original Dime Detective illustrations!" Hugh B. Cave, author of Bottled in Blonde.
