In this weeks episode I will be discussing “Sleuth Girl” by Don George. It is a crime story that appeared in the June 1939 issue of Ten Detective Aces. The story is only two pages long and I read it off of the PulpGen website.
The story focuses on Detective Wilcy Whitaker and his partner the titular Sleuth Girl. The two of them are in a park undercover, trying to draw out a criminal known as the Prowler who has been robbing and murdering couples in the park. Assisting them is the woman’s pet squirrel named Red.
