Further Information
Bernard Newman, born 1897 and died 1968, is better known as a travel writer and was extremely prolific. We have included only his criminous books in this bibliography but there are a huge number of other titles. He had three main series characters, Inspector Marshall, papa Pontivy and Tiger Lester. Very few of the books saw an American publication but we have noted all those that did. Whilst there is a heavy espionage/thriller base to many of the above, there are enough good old English mysteries to warrant his inclusion on this site.
