EM SPADE PRIVATE NOSE by S.J. Beres
In the nineteen forties and fifties, Hollywood released a plethora of low budget crime pictures shot in black and
white, featuring dark plots and hard-boiled detectives, policemen and flawed heroes and heroines. We call these
movies “film noir” because of their dark nature. The Maltese Falcon, The Big Sleep, and Casablanca are well-
known examples of the genre. Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler, et al wrote books in this style and
Humphrey Bogart was one of the biggest stars.
I have a fondness for “book noir” and so it is with humblest apologies and reverence that I dare tread in the
masters’ footsteps with these short stories.
Six short, humorous stories of Em Spayed, basset hound detective, as she takes on crime in the Los Angeles of
the 1940's - 1950's. Includes drool
