Jack Mann (E. Charles Vivian)


Gregory George Gordon Green—or Gees as he prefers to be called, doesn't want to follow in his father's military footsteps; he wants to be a detective and solve cases "from mumps to murder" as his billboard reads. Whether he's tracking Communists, werewolves, ghosts or ghouls, Gees and his loyal secretary root out evil wherever it lurks and have a great time doing it. The Gees mysteries are:


Gees' First Case (1936)

Nightmare Farm (1937)

Grey Shapes (1937)

The Kleinert Case (1938)

Her Ways Are Death (1938)

Maker of Shadows (1938)

The Ninth Life (1939)

The Glass Too Many (1940)


Jack Mann is the pseudonym of E. Charles Vivian (1882-1947), a well-known British writer who introduced Harry Stephen Keeler to his British publishers. For that alone Ramble House is proud to introduce Jack Mann to readers the world over who missed him the first time around.
