Further Information
Cecil M Wills, born in England 1891 had two main series characters, Geoffrey Boscobell and Roger Ellerdine. A good solid author whose books improved as the series expanded. The books seem to have had no contemporaneous publication in America, which seems a little strange given the above average quality of his work. .
