11/28/1936 "Twenty Year Payment" is a Treat
November 28, 1936. Among the eleven stories in today's issue of Detective Fiction Weekly is "Twenty Year Payment" by Lawrence Treat. (The only other author I recognize is Davis Dresser, aka Brett Halliday.) Treat wrote more than 700 mystery stories and is often considered the inventor of the police procedural. You can read the story here.
