Re your comment below:

> Adams must have been a fan of Race Williams.

Rex McBride and Adams's other detective characters always struck me as sort of the transitional figures connecting Race Williams to Mike Hammer.

In fact, McBride's comments to a cop in UP JUMPED THE DEVIL about how an "American Gestapo" is needed to deal with Nazi spies seems so similar to comments Hammer makes to Pat Chambers about dealing with commie spies in ONE LONELY NIGHT, that I wouldn't be surprised to learn that Spillane (who's already admitted to being a Daly fan) was also an Adams fan.
