With one end of a rope around Tracy’s neck and the other end attached to an innocent young boy hanging out of a high-rise window, Chester Gould proves that he can still invent unique death traps for the sharp-jawed detective. And just when they think they’ve captured the criminal mastermind known as “Button,” he escapes…and escapes again! Also featured are Button’s sister named Hope Lezz; the knife-throwing ex-vaudevillian Keeno-the-Great; and a con man named Big Brass, who peddles atomic nose rings.

Also here: a seemingly demure grandmother named Florabelle, who dresses up her long-dead brother’s skull with a wig, hat, shirt, tie, and cigar…and just happens to keep a razor-sharp guillotine in her basement.

Gould is still the man when you are looking for crazed villains, and even crazier bad girls.

Six-page introduction with photos and specialty art, written by writer Max Allan Collins, who wrote DT for some time himself, and is a highly praised writer of detective and suspense novels, including Road to Perdition, which of course was turned into the film of the same name.
