He had been hired to write a TV tie-in for a series called Markham, but he decided that the story was too good to waste on someone elses characters, and he turned the novel into the first of a series of Ed London, private eye.Or at least he hoped it would be the first of a series.

Block never completed another book about Ed London, but during 1962 and 1963 he published three novelettes about the character for Mans Magazine. Given the magazine that published them, the tales were filled not only with gunmen but also with stag-party girls — and Larry Blocks expert storytelling.When Blocks early stories were collected as One Night Stands, the Ed London tales could not be found.

In fact, the author was certain that he had written one of them, thought that he might have done a second, and forgotten all about the third.Here then, for the first time in book form, are the lost cases of Lawrence Blocks first private eye—pipe-smoking, Courvoisier-drinking, Mozart-loving but ultra-tough operative, Ed London.FIRST BOOK PUBLICATION
