"My name is Banner, Kent Banner," this set of three stories begins. "I�m a private detective. My DeSoto is paid for, and looks it. I have a couple of grand in the bank, a.38 on my hip, and every cheap hood, crooked cop, and shyster lawyer in L.A. on my back most of the time," he continues.

All of the elements of great detective stories are here: perpetually gray weather, a just-divorced detective who attracts women and bad guys in equal measure, mysterious notes, stray guns and informants named Pencil and Big Sally. Join Kenneth Banner in post-war Los Angeles, where everyone from rich socialites to the wife of a nuclear scientist need his help. You can't help but love Banner; he's straight out of the best detective stories you've read: insightful, humble, quick-witted with a dry sense of humor, a man who loves his scotch as much as he loves seeing justice done.
Think Guy Noir in L.A., with the type of characters you would find in the City of Angels, not in the more pedestrian Midwest. See if you can figure out whodunit faster than Banner in this entertaining set of three stories.
