Although I’m a big fan of Frank Guber’s characters, Johnny Fletcher and Sam Craig, and have posted on several of the titles, not to mention more than a few of his westerns, I’d never read THE HONEST DEALER. Kevin Tipple did a Forgotten Books look one Friday on his blog, Kevin Tipple\'s Corner. I do have a different edition though, mine being a February, 1949 Signet release. Hey, this book is nine months older than I am(and that’s pretty old). His very good review(read it) spurred me to dig this one up, as well as another in the series, and renew my acquaintanceship with the pair of con men/detectives. It’s been to long since I last read one.
Murder seems to follow them around as they try to make their kind of a living and they usually look good for them, forcing Johnny to play detective to clear the pair’s names.
A fun read as always. If you have not read any of these guys’ adventures, I urge you to track some down. You’ll thank Kevin and me for steering you toward them.
