Aren't you thinking of Blood Money? I like this "novel" made up of two
stories, very pulpy, Paddy the Mex in fine form, Dick Foley, great
stuff. I actually have held in my hands an early (probably first)
edition of the two stories of Blood Money as a novel, from the
thirties, I think. A university library had it. The paper was
yellowed, pulpy. It looked like a cheap edition.
