The Bloody Moonlight, first published in 1948, is a fascinating detective/murder mystery featuring the Chicago-based team of Ed Hunter and his Uncle Am. The pair are working for the Ben Starlock Agency in this, the third book in their series. The case involves an inventor who has created an interstellar radio receiver, a potential female investor who wants to know if the inventor's claims that he has communicated with Mars are true, and a string of chilling murders that are possibly the work of a werewolf. Author Fredric Brown (1906-1972) was an American science fiction and mystery writer who also wrote television plays for the Alfred Hitchcock series. His first full-length Crime Fiction, The Fabulous Clipjoint, received the Edgar award for the best first novel from the Mystery Writers of America, and introduced the characters of Ed and Am Hunter.
