RARA-AVIS: Ed and Uncle Ambrose

I just read The Fabulous Clipjoint by Fredric Brown. I'm usual not a huge fan of amateur crimesolvers, non-professionals meddling in murders. Though that is the surface plot of this book (son and brother set out to solve a man's death), veteran carney Ambrose Hunter has the skills that are needed to walk down the mean streets of Chicago and find out what he wants. His nephew, Ed Hunter, is a willing and able student. Great book.

I seem to remember someone mentioning Brown wrote more books involving the pair. Can anyone tell me their titles?

Thanks, Mark
