Cover to "The Damned Lovely" by Jack Webb.John Alfred "Jack" Webb (1916-2008) was a mystery writer who often featured the detective team of Sammy Golden and Father Shanley. Born and educated in Southern California, where he lived in Playa Del Ray, he had a varied career as a keeper of birds in a zoo, an aircraft production supervisor and a technical writer before turning to full-time novel writing. He should not be confused with Jack Webb (1920-1982), creator and star of Dragnet. More about the Father Joseph Shanley novels can be found here.
