A Desperate Chance
The dime novel detective "Old Sleuth" was the creation of Harlan Halsey, a former director of the Brooklyn Education Board. Halsey's stories first appeared in 1872 in the six-cent weekly Fireside Companion and quickly became a favorite among readers, who enjoyed the author's novel use of Bowery slang. Old Sleuth was not an elderly man as his name suggests, but rather a strong, virile youth whose favorite disguise was that of an aged, bearded man.
