Malone, Twister. Twister Malone was created by Davis Dresser (Jerry Burke (II), Michael Shayne, Pat Stevens) and appeared in four novels from 1940 to 1953, beginning with Death Rides the Pecos.

Twister Malone and his partner Chuckaluck Thompson are a pair of cowboys in Sleepy Valley, somewhere in the western frontier of America, who use their heads as well as their guns to solve crimes and catch bad men. Malone is as much detective as he is shootist, and the novels are a real attempt to meld the detective and the cowboy genres.
