There is Something About a Dame

(The Nimble Gunner)
(A book in the Ed Noon series)
A novel by


"I should have been thinking about other things. Like how long does a man live after a .45 slug rips a hole through his lower abdomen? And why shoot a man through the gut anyway unless you wanted him to suffer real bad? Or is life just a succession of sappy accidents after all and none of us are exactly geniuses when it comes to directing our own breaks?"--Ed Noon, Private Eye

<>Ed Noon comes up against a dark mirror in the form of brutal Private Eye Vince Devlin as he searches for a lost Shakespeare play.<>

Is the missing Shakespeare folio genuine? Why did somebody try to kill Memo Morgan, Broadway's Mr. Memory, and Noon's old friend? Is Stuart St. James, the famous English actor, all he seems to be? And what is the meaning of Savannah Gage's strange tattoo? Noon comes up against a dark mirror in the form of brutal Private Eye Vince Devlin (a pastiche of Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer).


The Adventures of Ed Noon, Private Eye, span over 30 novels written between 1953 and 1990. Noon starts out dirt poor with a tiny office in Midtown Manhattan (his "Mouse Auditorium") but success moves him to better digs, a lovely secretary (Melissa Mercer) and, eventually, the most important client of all: the President of the United States. The series concludes with a daring turn toward science fiction in the last two novels. Through it all, the wisecracking Noon is consistent: a movie and baseball-obsessed romantic who always fights the good fight. And, more often than not, wins.
