Cyril Joyce is, sadly, a mystery to us, the British Library don't even have a birth date.
Although the dust jackets are photographic they are attractive and a full set of books would look impressive, especially given their uniform size.
Book collectors will not find the books common and as usual with this publisher most seem to have gone to public libraries.
I'm not aware of any series characters employed by this author.
US books. The Library of Congress lists no American editions.

Information Update: This Kindly Sent in by Dave Stephens: To Whom We're Indebted
I was best friends with Cyril Joyce's son, Paul, in the mid 70s. I remember Cyril being a light-hearted, jovial man who enjoyed football.
I distinctly remember him working on a book called A Web to Catch a Spider around that time.
He lived in a house called' Briar Lea' in Lydiate, Merseyside, north of Liverpool.
His wife was called Rita, they also had a daughter called Diane, who was older than Paul, and a rather bald dog called Bess who used to chase things in the garden. I have fond memories of this lovely family. Hoping this maybe of some assistance.

Information Update: This Kindly Sent in by Ray Smith: To Whom We're Indebted
Cyril was working for Scottish Widows and called on me when I was broker in Warrington in the 1970's. He gave me a signed copy of A Web To Catch a Spider and The Elimination Process as I gave a lot of business to Scottish Widows. I still treasure them
