Created by Robert Bruce Stewart
As the nineteenth century slides into the Twentieth, easy-going Brooklyn insurance fraud investigator HARRY REESE is on the case, narrating a series of light-hearted novels by "indie" publisher Robert Bruce Stewart (Scottish, much?).
Were he born a hundred years later, Harry might be labelled a "slacker," but as it is, he's just ploughing through life, working his cases and wise-cracking along the way. No fuss, no muss.
And then he meets Emmie McGinnis, his future wife, an excitable girl and trouble magnet if there ever was one, and calamity and lively banter ensue.
Harry's investigations take them all over the place, with Emmie frequently inserting herself into the proceedings.
Comparisons, of course, point to Nick and Nora Charles, but with their screwball shenanigans I see these as a more genteel, less hard-boiled and less alcohol-marinated version of Jonathan Latimer's Bill Crane series.
