The 1930s give way to the ’40s and Chester Gould makes things personal in this sixth volume of the Dick Tracy series. First comes a story of broken hearts and wilted flowers, as Tess Trueheart jilts her detective boyfriend for an ex-ballplayer who schemes to inherit millions, and he’ll kill anyone who gets in his way – including Tess! An encounter with small-time dognapper puts Tracy on the trail of a gang of fur thieves, and then hardened criminal Stooge Viller softens up, thanks to his young daughter, but not before he drops Dick Tracy into a dastardly death trap! The detective, meanwhile, crosses paths with an abandoned infant and an amnesiac chanteuse and sees that crime is for couples when the diminutive Jerome and his hulking bride, Mamma, sew death and destruction from city streets to the western plains, while the suave mastermind Krome decides to part ways with his traitorous girlfriend by permanently parting her hair! This book paves the way for the debut of The Mole and the Great Grotesque Villains who follow and completes the Clover Press and Library of American Comics transformation of the first six volumes of the Dick Tracy series into the larger-sized, standard format of the series.
