James Tierney is a private detective in New York City. He used to be a policeman, known as “Bonehead Tierney” and “Solid Ivory,” but as a private detective and operator of “James Tierney, Incorporated” he is among the best and most successful in the city. His agency employs agents with a wide-ranging variety of talents. For himself, he is “stolid and without imagination…but his brain was a sensitive plate and his eye the lens of a photographic machine.”
