The Exploits of Beau Quicksilver (The Argosy Library)

$4.99$29.95

by Florence M. Pettee

Scourge of the underworld, “that damned dude dick”—Beau Quicksilver was an enigmatical crime-chaser—a mercurial master. A predecessor to Philo Vance, this detective solved seven separate cases in the pages of Argosy magazine, published in consecutive issues.

Author Florence M. Pettee’s work appeared in several of the top pulp magazines of the 1920s, including Black Mask, and her quirky characters known for their offbeat gimmicks and situations… not to mention her distinctive prose. Often written about—but never reprinted—the exploits of Beau Quicksilver belong in The Argosy Library.
