Suicide Scenario : A Nick Ransom Novelette
Nick Ransom is a Hollywood stuntman turned private eye who carries his roscoe under his arm, and has a plastic cigarette holder with silver filigree given to him by a client. He prefers to call himself a Confidential Investigator, a title he thinks is more refined than Detective. He gets a little help from a buddy, Ole Brunvig, one mean cop from the homicide squad. Ransom's stories, which were written in the form of novelettes, appeared in "Thrilling Detective" magazine. "Scuicide Scenario" was published in the February, 1948, issue of "Thrilling Detective."

About Robert Leslie Bellem
Robert Leslie Bellem was a prolific American writer who wrote in a variety of genres and for many pulp magazines, especially those of Culture Publications that included mastheads such as "Spicy Detective," "Spicy Adventure," "Spicy Western," and "Spicy Mystery." After the demise of the pulps, Bellem started writing for television and contributed scripts to shows such as "The Lone Ranger," "Adventures of Superman" (1950s version), the original Perry Mason, "77 Sunset Strip," and others. His most famous creation was the hardboiled detective Dan Turner, Hollywood Detective, who narrates the stories in the first person in a racy, slangy style that made them very popular at the time. Bellem also wrote at least two novels, of which the best known is "Blue Murder."
