DAN BANION is a reporter for The San Francisco Journal who acts so much like a private eye at times that "he often seems to forget that he owes the city editor a story," according to T.J. Binyon in Murder Will Out.
One of the blurbs descibes him as the kind of "no holds-barred kind of operative who couldn't be stopped by cops or by criminals"
