    Detective Review #17 0

    For most of time I red his average kind excitement giving, Cosmo had a good one this time, and a for once he had to work and be creative fast... I also like the development of Larry Steele case, not the big deal, but the characters brings more to the table than I thought before. The Bruce Nelson story is also good, you have a feeling that this time it might give a good finale. Best story: Bruce Nelson & Spy...
