In 1953, Michael Avallone’s first book, THE TALL DOLORES was published; a fast, funny mystery adventure set in Manhattan. In that book, we are introduced to ED NOON, private eye, a wise-cracking, movie and baseball-loving tough guy with a soft heart whose adventures often tipped towards the surreal. Between 1953 and 1990, in 36 novels, a handful of novellas and countless short stories, Ed Noon fought the good fight… usually out of a little midtown office so tiny and cramped that he called it the MOUSE AUDITORIUM.
Welcome to the Official Website of Michael Avallone. In 2012, we’ll be bringing Ed Noon, and other great characters from the Michael Avallone collection, back to the public.
