Henry Po

Created by Robert J. Randisi (1951--)

HENRY PO's job as an investigator for the New York Racing Commission lands him in some pretty dangerous jams, but he's managed to persevere in a series of short stories and at least one novel by Robert Randisi. A fitting American counterpart to Dick Francis' Sid Halley.

Although he's probably better known for the five million westerns he's written, Randisi is, of course, the founder of The Private Eye Writers of America, and is also responsible for Brooklyn-based P.I. Nick Delvecchio, Manhattan-based former boxer and current private eye Miles "Kid" Jacoby and most recently, the Rat Pack series featuring Vegas floor boss and casino troubleshooter Eddie G. They're all equally good, and equally recommended. They're all equally good, and equally recommended.
