Palmer, Stuart - The People Versus Withers and Malone


The best Palmer book I know about today is [People Vs. Withers and Malone]. This is a short story collection written in collaboration with Craig Rice. It features a collaboration between their two detectives, the acerbic Miss Withers and the Runyonesque lawyer John J. Malone, and is virtually unique in detective fiction history in that it involves the collaboration of two authors' detectives. (E.C. Bentley and H. Warner Allen's detectives collaborate briefly in Trent's Own Case (1936). Later, in the 1980's, the married couple Marcia Muller and Bill Pronzini would sometimes pool their series detectives.)
