Lou Fleener

Created by Duane Lindsay

Chicago private eye LOU FLEENER (and his sometime-partner and best bud Dion “Monk” Monkton) works the mean streets of the Windy City in the late fifties and early sixties, stumbling from one cockeyed mess to another, trying to keep their eyes on the prize, doing battle with mobsters, Nazis and the like, and trying to dodge the unsolicited amorous advances of one Cassidy Adams, a blonde “with a heart for pure gold,” in a series a comic capers self-published by Duane Lindsay.

The Amazon gang keeps repeating Westlake or Hallinan like a mantra, but after a little browsing I’m thinking, hmmmm, more like Ralph Kramden and Ed Norton.

Perhaps unintentionally…
