The Complete Adventures of The Dean
Merle Constiner
Introduction by Robert Weinberg

The Dean operates a Fortune Telling Business in a disreputable part of town. He is assisted by Benton Matthews who specializes in locks and guns. The Dean has the ear of Captain Kunkle, and the grudging assistance of Lieutenant Malloy. Clients arrive with outrageous problems which lead to brilliant solutions. These unusual and unique stories were published in Dime Detective Magazine in August 1940 through December 1945
