Further Information
Alison G Taylor has one main series character, Superintendent Michael McKenna. The books are collectable and have been well received. The first book, Simeons Bride, is the rarest and most valuable. It was one off the early hyper modern mystery fiction titles to explode in value virtually from publication. A great deal was hype though very modest print runs lead to panic amongst some collectors that they may miss the boat. Things have calmed down somewhat now but the first two titles are still uncommon and do carry something of a premium. The later first editions are all relatively easy to locate.
