PaperBack: “The Murderer Who Wanted More”

Part of a series honoring the late author and blogger Bill Crider.

The Murderer Who Wanted More, by Baynard Kendrick (Dell, 1951). This outing for blind New York sleuth Duncan Maclain was originally published as a short story in the January 1944 issue of The American Magazine, but was later released as one of Dell’s 10-cent editions. The Maclain series is often cited as the inspiration for the 1971-1972 ABC-TV series Longstreet, starring James Franciscus. Cover illustration by Rafael de Soto.
