From the Publisher:
The world of one-armed private investigator Dan Fortune (born Fortunowski) is filled with danger, deceit -- and striking contrasts. The 14 stories in Fortune¹s World range from the mean streets of New York City, to the bleak winter world of Syracuse, New York, to sunny South America, and Santa Barbara, California, where Fortune now has his office. The contrasts go beyond settings, for Michael Collins explores the inequities in modern society, and his stories are driven by a social conscience rare in popular literature.
Fortune¹s World contains all the previous uncollected Dan Fortune short stories as well as a new story written especially for this volume. The introduction is by Professor Richard Carpenter, prefaces to each story are by the author, and the book concludes with a complete checklist of Dan Fortune novels and short stories.
