Bellem, Robert Leslie: Dan Turner-Hollywood Detective Sampler 5. V1. 8 Jun 2011
Dan Turner, also known as the Hollywood Detective, was a fictional private detective created by Robert Leslie Bellem. His first appearance was in the second issue of the pulp magazine Spicy Detective, dated June 1934, and he continued to appear regularly in that magazine (which was retitled Speed Detective in 1943) until its demise in February 1947. He also appeared in his "own" magazine, Hollywood Detective, which was published by Culture Publications (later Trojan Publishing) and ran from January 1942 to October 1950.
Dead Man’s Guilt
Everybody knew Kilgore had been killed trying to escape from San Quentin. Yet now this girl, who knew all the facts in the case, pleads with Dan to save her from the dead man!
It's rare that Dan encounters dough so dirty that he won't touch it. Even this time, when the ante was boosted enough, he forgot his scruples. Besides there was a feminine angle. . . .
It was a screwy assignment. The Hollywood horror actor thought he was going crazy! "I want you to save me from myself, Mr. Turner," he said. "I'm turning into a werewolf. And I want you to keep me from hurting my wife . . ."
"I think my wife is being blackmailed," the guy opened up. And Dan agreed to protect the dame while she kept her secret tryst. It wasn't until after she'd kept her clandestine appointment that he had a real idea of how big a job he'd taken upon himself.
