Effie said: 'You're expecting trouble?' She felt scared.
Callaghan said: 'I've been expecting trouble all my life, Effie, and I usually get it.'
Slim Callaghan, of Callaghan Investigations, the world famous detective and connoisseur of women, is at work again. Ruthless, tough, cynical, Slim was just getting wise to the game of Nicky Starata, an overly-smooth poker player, when he got involved in the mysterious Admiral Gardell case.
No one asked Slim Callaghan to investigate - but they had to like it. A £40,000 insurance claim, two beautiful dames and possibly a fake suicide were at stake.
Callaghan's motto was, 'We get there somehow and who the hell cares how'. He got there and got himself a client, eventually - an exquisitely lovely one . . .
Sorry You've Been Troubled was originally published in 1942.
