The Twelve Dames of Christmas, 2018: #10

Celebrating this festive season with brassy bombshells.

Two Smart Dames, by Gene Ross (Leisure Library, 1952). From the Vintage Paperback & Book Covers page on Facebook: “Gene Ross was but one of a few pseudonyms used by British hard-boiled writer William Simpson Newton. You may remember him in Spike Morelli mode. He, like a few others of note, hopped on the postwar paperback band wagon loaded with all things noir, American, and tough as nails.” Illustration by Reginald Heade.
