This was one of the few Scott Jordan books that I had not read, and it was good to revisit the character. There isn’t that much quirky or unusual about him, other than that he is a lawyer that functions mostly as a private eye. This volume is composed of short stories that were primarily published around 1953-1954, many of which appeared first in Manhunt. There isn’t much plot in these, as Jordan solves them in a page or two after about 10 pages of buildup. There is just something readable about them. There are a couple of stories here, however, that highly resemble each other, with just a few name changes for Scott’s previous employer and his legal secretary.
