HAMMETT HERALD-TRIBUNE: "First Aide to Murder" (1939)

This tale first appeared in The Black Mask for February 1926 as "The Assistant Murderer." It featured Alec Rush, "the world's ugliest detective." Why the title was changed for newspaper serialization is anybody's guess. My apologies for failing to find a good depiction of ugly Alec.
