Carl Guard
Created by Milton Ozaki (1913-1989)

"What the hell is this all about... Dammit, I thought I made it clear you weren't to do any private dicking."
-- Carl receives a warning.

CARL GUARD is a Chicago P.I. who did his "private dicking" in only one novel, at least as Carl Guard.

However, he bears a remarkable resemblance to another Chicago shamus Carl Good, a character the author created for another publisher (under the pseudonym of Robert O. Saber) who appeared in a slew of paperback originals. And Ozaki created a few other Windy City eyes, as well -- Rusty Forbes and Max Keene among them.

Milton Ozaki was a Chicago newspaperman, artist, tax attorney and beauty salon operator who turned to writing crime fiction after World War II, and gave us a couple of dozen hard-boiled novels, all but two of them paperback originals, and all of them full of enough sex, violence and over-boiled prose to fulfill all your daily cheese requirements.
