Bill "the Hook" Lockwood
Created by Brad Latham

BILL LOCKWOOD, better known by his nickname "The HOOK", which he received in his boxing days, is a World War I veteran turned high-living chief investigator for the Transatlantic Insurance Company in these five period piece PBO's set in the 1930's. He's a suave gent, with a definite touch of class. He lives in a swanky hotel, drives a gunmetal-grey 1937 Cord convertible, smokers Camels and carries a Dunhill lighter, not to mention a Colt .38. One character claims Bill looks "like he just stepped out of an ad for Arrow shirts."

The Hook appeared in five PBOs, part of Warner's Men of Action Books line).
