Sam and Tate Morgan
Created by Gil Brewer
Pseudonyms include Bailey Morgan, Eric Fitzgerald, Frank Sebastian, Jack Holland, Roy Carroll, Elaine Evans and Barry Miles, as well as the house name of Ellery Queen
From the back cover:
Brothers SAM and TATE MORGAN run the Morgan Private Investigations Agency in Gil Brewer's 1958 Avon PBO The Bitch, a nasty little tale that blends a failed marriage, a dame with steam to spare, insanity, stolen loot and the usual treachery and violence. Good stuff.
Gil Brewer was a mainstay of the fifties pulp fiction scene. Besides being a regular in the hard-boiled digests of the era, under a slew of different pen names, he also cranked out thirty or so paperback originals, usually full of tough action, dark twists and a generous dollop of sleaze and tease, with such tantalizing titles as The Vengeful Virgin and Nude on Thin Ice. Some of his other private eyes include Lee Baron.
A great checklist, from David Rachel's always great Noirboiled Notes.
