Twenty-four stories starring one of the most unique pulp detectives of all time.

In a hot, cramped office not far from the Pasig River, an ingenious investigator waits for clients. Younger than he appears, with gray hair and squinting eyes, he is Jo Gar, the half-Filipino Island Detective whose intuition makes him one of the sharpest sleuths in either hemisphere. From the back alleys of Manila to the docks of San Francisco, he tracks killers, unmasks liars, and outwits thieves. Although he appears harmless, this tropical PI is not afraid to pull a knife or squeeze the trigger on his army-issue Colt .45.

Based on Raoul Whitfield's childhood experiences in the Philippines, Jo Gar is a rarity of his era: an Asian sleuth who defies the stereotypes of Fu Manchu and Charlie Chan. Gar is one of the most brilliant creations ever to step from the pages of Black Mask.
