This time around, the adventures are not particularly weird. Typically a mystery man threatens the life of one or more characters, and kills a few under initially puzzling circumstances, before Hammond figures out what's going on. The gimmicks are no more fantastic than a very loud loud speaker, poison gas released through the mouth of an idol, or a race car fitted to run on rails.
Chadwick is a good writer, and the stories flow smoothly with no distractions and a lot of that very distinctive pulp excitement that seems to have completely vanished from adventure fiction today. The stories are all from the period 1932-36 and extracted from the pages of DETECTIVE DRAGNET and TEN DETECTIVE ACES.
