Return to Ramble House Page



by Jack Mann


His name is Gees . . .


From the year 1938 comes this intriguing, hard-to-find novel from Jack Mann. There were eight novels altogether about the man called Gees and Ramble House has all eight back in availability. THE KLEINERT CASE involves a mysterious German named Kleinert who hires Gees to protect him from "nothing". As you can guess, the "nothing" turns out to be a lot more than Gees bargained for. 260 pages.
