Jim Anthony #1: Spies of Destiny
Jim Anthony, Super-Detective, an Irish-American, and a son of a Comanche Princess, he was a super-detective in the mold of Doc Savage and appeared in his own pulp magazine beginning in October 1940 and lasting until October 1943. John Grange was a house name. The first three novels in the series were written by Victor Rousseau. From number 16 to the end, they were written by Robert Leslie Bellem (author of Dan Turner, Hollywood Detective) and W. T. Ballard. The authorship on novels 4 through 15 has not been ascertained. The two stories in this collection fall into that latter category.SPIES OF DESTINY--The Red Dragon roared and murder followed murder! It struck at foreign diplomats. It struck at Jim Anthony and the girl he loved. And it led him on a trail of danger and intrigue to the world's spy capital--Lisbon!
I.O.U. MURDER--The grief of the little old lady wasn't recorded on the police blotter, but it was a factor Jim Anthony took into account in the murder case. Maybe it meant more to him than the wiles of a beautiful, scheming widow.
