Robert Wade and William Miller, who together became Wade Miller and Whit Masterson, were lifelong crime writers, and masters of, especially, the private investigator genre. Shoot to Kill, featuring PI Max Thursday (created prior to Joe Friday), written sixty years ago, exemplifies their art and craft.
