Cleve Adams

As with many of the pulp fiction writers of the early to mid 20th century, Cleve F. Adams was many things before he turned to writing. His short stories were published in a wide variety of magazines from Cosmopolitan to Collier’s and his novels are fast-paced mysteries that could be considered top class.

He is definitely an under-appreciated pulp author but there is rarely a hardboiled omnibus that is published without a Cleve Adams story included.

According to Vincent Starrett, a once well-known columnist, Cleve Adams was “far and away the best writer of the hardboiled school”.
