Vale, Eric. “Eric Vale had startled the entire world by his feats of crime solution. A mere youth, he nevertheless was said to be the cleverest detective of all time. He operated from a remote island in the Pacific, where he had a strange laboratory presided over by several assistants, each an authority in some special field of crime detection. His plane was almost a rocket ship, built secretly from his own design.” Vale fights against the Japanese in China and across Southeast Asia. He appears in stories with titles like “The Devil of Sarawak,” “The White Leopard,” and “If It’s Cloudy, You Die.”
