The Complete Cases of Keyhole Kerry

by Frederick C. Davis

Big-city residents on both sides of the law regard him with equal measures of fear and reticence. They know that whatever they're doing, right or wrong, will sooner or later come to the attention of Guy "Keyhole" Kerry, a wise-cracking, hard-charging journalist who knows all and tells most of it. Kerry's profession brings him into contact with all kinds of people, and the law of averages guarantees that some of them are better left alone. But Keyhole Kerry will risk anything for a scoop, even if it means becoming embroiled in murder mysteries and making himself a target.

This relatively brief series (eight late Thirties entries) was written for Dime Detective by Frederick C. Davis, a tireless pulp scribe who sold more yarns to the magazine-73 in all-than any other contributor save T.T. Flynn. With a half-dozen recurring characters in this one rough-paper periodical, Davis was one of the many talented contributors who made Dime Detective a prestigious crime pulp second only to the legendary Black Mask in its impact on the genre.
