4/7/1932 Bruce Cook is born
April 7, 1932. Bruce Cook was born on this date in Chicago. He wrote four private eye novels about L.A. detective Chico Cervantes. I can't find a picture of the cover of the one with my favorite title: Death As A Career Move.
Under the name Bruce Alexander he wrote a series of mysteries starring Sir John Fielding, the blind man who in real life created London's first police force.
