Bryan Rodney Author Biography - Information About the Author
Bryan Rodney is a pseudonym used by Cyril Edgeley who, according to the British Library records, appears not to have written under his own name.
He is listed in Hubin's crime fiction reference book and his main series character is Francis Villiers who appears in all the books listed above, he is a book collector and master safe cracker!
Rare books in dust jackets, watch out for reprints with cheaper prices on spine.
Superb period artwork, they could all be by Micklewright I suspect.
I can find no record of the books having been published in America or in paperback format.
