Quires Matter, The—eBook

5.0/5 rating (1 votes)
They wanted him to find a man in New York without giving him a description, without offering any information as to the man's tastes or circumstances! They gave him a name. And that was all . . .

quires_matter_websiteFrom the pen of Roger Torrey, author of 42 Days For Murder, and mysteries for Black Mask, Private Detective, Detective Story, Dime Detective, and similiar magazines comes another hard-boiled tale of mystery and deceict.


McGowan went into his office to find three Western Union telegrams awaiting him. The first read:

PLEASE LOCATE ARNOLD QUIRES YOUR CITY STOP KEEP INVESTIGATION SECRET STOP WILL PAY CUSTOMARY FEE AND EXPENSES STOP WIRE REPORT WHEN AVAILABLE STOP FIRST NATIONAL BANK AND TRUST COMPANY RICHFIELD TEXAS.

The other telegrams also requested Arnold Quires to be found. What intriguing situation could arise for three separate clients to each be seeking the same man?

"It made a nice little problem. All I had to do was find a man I'd never heard of before. With no description of him to help—no idea of his tastes or circumstances or anything else about him. Outside of a suspicion that he came from Texas, and that was pure conjecture, I didn't have a thing to go on and I wasn't in the least hopeful about results."

But Terrence McGowan's reputation as the best private investigator in the City wasn't made for nothing.
