JACK HAGEE, P.I.
A go-it alone guy battling a tide of corruption ...



Meet Jack Hagee

The first of C.J. Henderson’s series characters, hardboiled detective Jack Hagee is one of the toughest private eyes ever created. Appearing in novels, short stores and even graphic novels, this New York City-based hard case earned the author acres of praise when he first arrived on the scene. Ex-military intelligence, calculating, brutal and honest, Hagee seemed at first to be nothing more than a Mike Hammer clone. The wit, vitality and honor of the character, however, quickly established him as a breath of fresh air in the over-crowded field of cookie-cutter P.I.s.

C.J. Henderson is a virtuoso in the field of hardboiled fiction — and Jack Hagee’s cases show him writing at his sharpest, toughest, most cynical. Jack Hagee is a unique character in hardboiled fiction. Tall, tough, and honest, he struggles against a dark and bitter world.
