"Just Plain" Jones
Created by Norbert Davis (1909-49)
"My feet are killing me."
An investigator for The Suburban Mortgage and Trust Company, "JUST PLAIN" JONES is an endearing character, tough as any pulp eye, complete with brass knucks, and a .38 Police Positive, but plagued by sore feet.
A great gag, bringing a touch of world-weary humanity to the guy. Clearly a forerunner to some of pilpster Davis' later, greater pulp detectives, such as Max Latin, Doan and Carstairs, Ben Shaley and "Bail Bond" Dodds.
