If you go to the pleece or try any funny bisness little Cecilia will get her throte cut so now you know.

Slim Callaghan, the British answer to an American hard boiled private detective, is arguably Peter Cheyney's greatest creation. Callaghan has delighted readers from his first appearance in 1938, and all his adventures are now happily back in print.

No investigation is too audacious for Callaghan, who finds time, in Calling Mr. Callaghan and between the obligations of booze and broads, to solve twelve piquant mysteries. He is aided of course by the redoubtable Windemere Nikolls and loyal secretary Effie Thompson.

Calling Mr. Callaghan was originally published in 1953.
