The Return of Jimmie Lavender
Vincent Starrett

Volume 13: The Vincent Starrett Memorial Library

Chicago's most famous private detective returns with 13 novelettes published in book form for the first time. Noted specialist Peter Ruber has collected these stories and written an introduction which places them in the contexts of the Jimmie Lavender stories and Vincent Starrett's work as a whole. They are reprinted from Short Stories, Wayside Tales, Top Notch Magazine, and Mystery.

A baker's dozen of delightful mystery yarns featuring the James Eliot Lavender and his chronicler Charles Gilruth. Most were published in the 1920s in Wayside Tales, Short Stories and Real Detective Tales & Mystery Stories, which are almost impossible to find today at any price. None of these stories have appeared in book form before.
