Eddie Anderson

Created by Fredric Brown

Pint-size Chicago private eye EDDIE ANDERSON, on the trail of an escaped homicidal maniac, goes undercover in a sanitarium. On his honeymoon, no less.

A delightful short story and one of the relatively few short stories by Brown that features an honest-to-goodness P.I. Fredric Brown although, of course, he did write several novels featuring uncle-and-nephew gumshoes Ed and Am Hunter.
