A.A. Fair was a pen name of Erle Stanley Gardner, author of the Perry Mason books. We have bunches and bunches of Gardner and tons of Ian Fleming. Bunches! Some of them are even bundled together for you convenience.
I love the stern look of this lady, presumably ‘Bertha Cool’. From an Amazon.com review:
Meet Donald Lam, he’s a private detective or at least, he is by the end of the book. A more unlikely looking P.I. you’ll never meet, as he is constantly reminded. At 5 and a half feet tall and 127 pounds, he’s simply not intimidating at all. But what he lacks in brawn he more than makes up for in brains, a fact that is not lost on his new employer, Bertha Cool of the B.L. Cool Agency, was sharp enough to spot.
Now, Bertha Cool is also not the most likely head figure of a detective agency, although physically impressive she most certainly is. She’s sixty-something with grey hair, sparkling eyes and a grandmotherly expression. She weighs in at over 300 pounds and is described as having the majesty of a snow capped mountain and the assurance of a steamroller.
