(1901-46)

PAT McCARTHY is an ex-agency man from Chicago and St. Louis) now running his own outfit, with the help of sidekick Marge Chalmers. He doesn't have much use for cops, though -- maybe because he used to be one in New York City. He and Margie appeared in fourteen stories published in Black Mask.
