Dail Ambler Author Biography - Information About the Author
Dail Ambler was, unusually in this gangster pulp genre, a lady Betty Mabel Lilian Uelmen who went by Betty Williams, she was born in 1919 and died in 1974 - she also wrote as Danny Spade.
The books from the 1970s are relatively easy to find, note the Robert Hale book is a hardback issued with dust jacket, but the earlier titles are rare, seldom found in collectable condition.
Publisher and date information is given when ascertained for sure but the Bodleian Library in Oxford doesn't list publisher names and some of the books in this bibliography are not held in the British Library.
