Sam
Russo Mysteries


   



Eio Books Home
    Sam Russo is a neglected graduate of the Staten Island Home for Children. Self-named and self-styled, Russo's not long back from World War II where his unit fought on the Pacific Front with the very last of America's cavalry troops. Holding on to the rest of New York City by a ferryboat, Staten Island is not the kind of place for a real Private Eye. But Sam's a dreamer with the gift of gab. He's a young sleuth who'd like to follow in the hard-boiled footsteps of Bogart's Philip Marlowe or Bogart's Sam Spadeā€”if only he was hard-boiled. Even so, sleuthing has brought him three good things: a yodeling dog named Jane, an upper crust sassy dame called Mrs. Willingford, and some tough spots where it's do or die.

CASE 1
1948. Sam Russo, self-named and self-styled, would follow in the hard-boiled footsteps of Sam Spade, if he was hard-boiled. Up to his hocks in the murders of three young jockeys with both local cops and the track turning a blind eye, Sam is a closer. He's coming home if it kills him. Race horses, a gorgeous sassy dame, the Season at Saratoga, what more could a PI want?
To survive it. MORE...

CASE 2
Sam Russo's first case brought him two good things: Jane, a yodeling dog, and Mrs. Willingford, a rich and sassy dame. Now back home in his crummy Staten Island room, all he wants is to relax, read books, and go to the movies. Fat chance. One knock on the door and he and Jane are careening down Broadway, in and out of one hit show after another, in hot pursuit of a giant killer. MORE...

Holly lives in the shabby room next to Sam's. She's a man. He's a woman. Sam doesn't care. He likes Holly. His dog Jane likes Holly. Life is fine until a Lagonda rolls through Stapleton. Getting into that car, Holly's just turned the worst trick of her life. When Holly disappears, Russo and Jane find themselves lost in a sordid world of hidden mansions, a twisted social club, and high society secrets. MORE...
