Tony Hunter
Created by Robert George Dean

Ace operative for the New York-based Schmidt Agency, ANTHONY "TONY" HUNTER is suitably hardboiled and suitably flirtatious with his attractive (of course) receptionist and secretary, Irma. He also seems to get around a bit-in the course of the ten books he's appeared in, his cases have taken him to Maine, Washington, Florida, Conneticutt, St. Louis and various other parts of the Midwest.
