Kenneth Robeson The Smiling Dogs CHAPTER I The Smiling Dogs The setting for the scene was a little like the setting for a nightmare. It was about the time to have nightmares, too almost twelve oclock at night. You know how, in nightmares, you sometimes seem to see long vistas, with horror at the other end Or endless lines of walls around you, shutting you in with fear Or interminable flights of stairs with some devil coming up them a step at a time after you Well, it was the latter with Spencer ...

Kenneth Robeson Tuned for Murder CHAPTER I Dollars on Wings The man stood on the downtown corner doing things that no one had ever seen done before. Outrageous, crazy things you might have expected to see done in an institution where the windows are barred and the walls are padded, but never on a street corner in the financial section of a respectable city. Garfield City was extremely respectable, as towns go. It was in southern New York State in a hill region where quarries, mines and farming ...

Kenneth Robeson The Glass Mountain CHAPTER I Lightning Bolt Old Joe Bass was commonly called Fish-eyes. That was partly because of his name, and partly because he had that kind of eyes. They stuck out a little, were far apart in his rather narrow face, didnt ever seem to blink, and had a glazed look. Joe Bass dressed in overalls that were ninety percent patches faded to all different shades of blue, had skin like leather from years of exposure to sun and wind, and left an almost unbroken trail ...

Kenneth Robeson Stockholders in Death CHAPTER I Stockholders in Death It was after one oclock in the morning, but Joseph Crimm, semi-retired lawyer, was just walking home from his office on Lexington Avenue. It was the latest he had worked for a long time. Joseph Crimm, dapper and elderly and kindly-eyed, very seldom had anything important enough to work that late on. He did now. Something very important. He was extremely thoughtful about it. Now and then he frowned a little. It was dark here. ...

Kenneth Robeson The Blood Ring CHAPTER I Shades of the Past Just off Massachusetts Avenue, in Washington, D.C., squatted the great, dark-red bulk of the Braintree Museum. It had plenty of grounds around it, shaded by huge old trees. It was beautiful in daylight. But at night, with none too many street lamps around there anyway, it looked pitch-dark, grim, filled with whispering shadows. On this particular night, it was darker than ever around Braintree Museum. The big trees seemed actually to ...

Kenneth Robeson The Frosted Death CHAPTER I The Glass Capsule The man was a perfect example of the way in which fate sometimes selects obscure persons for great historic roles. He was certainly obscure enough. His name was John Braun, pronounced Brown. He was average in height, average in weight, average in brain power, and average in earning capacity. Mr. John Q. Public, himself. Yet fate chose him as the first one. Braun worked on the night shift at the Laddex Rubber Co. on lower Eighth ...

Kenneth Robeson The Devils Horns CHAPTER I Murder Trap The apartment building did not cover much ground space, but it loomed ten stories up into the frosty winter night. Some others in Ashton City were larger, but this was the most ornate and commanded the biggest rents. The surrounding streets were very dark. The shadows seemed blackest right around the building. And that was as it should be. For that building had a dark reputation. Its owner had an even darker one. At the corner of the ...

Kenneth Robeson The Sky Walker CHAPTER I The Noise From The Sky It was half past three in the afternoon. That is a little early for the cocktail hour, so there werent many people in Mikes Tavern. There were enough to provide plenty of witnesses, however. And all were witnesses, because all saw the crazy thing that happened, that day in Chicago. Mikes Tavern is on Belmont Avenue, not far from Lincoln Park. Probably the location was the reason why the thing happened there, because the source of ...

Kenneth Robeson The Yellow Hoard CHAPTER I The Human Rat The building was narrow, four stories tall, and of old brick. It was like most buildings around Washington Square tall and narrow, once the residence of a rich man, now made over into apartments. There was no hint of deadliness in the building. There was no hint of deadliness anywhere in the lower New York neighborhood, for that matter. Kids skated on the curving walks. Nurses wheeled babies and stopped to talk to policemen. Nobody looked ...

Kenneth Robeson Justice, Inc. PROLOGUE In the roaring heart of the crucible, steel is made. In the raging flame of personal tragedy, men are sometimes forged into something more than human. It was so with Dick Benson. He had been a man. After the dread loss inflicted on him by an inhuman crime ring, he became a machine of vengeance dedicated to the extermination of all other crime rings. He turned into the person we know now: a figure of ice and steel, more pitiless than both a mechanism of ...
