Further Information
David Williams, born 1926, is a quality British writer whose main series character, Mark Treasure, appears in the first seventeen books listed above. He is an amateur sleuth, merchant banker by trade. His wife Molly makes regular appearances and adds some humour to the proceedings. The last six books listed feature his other series character, Inspector Parry. The author is Welsh, went to University in Oxford, St John's College, and later became extremely successful in advertising before becoming a full-time writer. For collectors, things are pretty straight forward, no issue points or pitfalls. The books are relatively easy to locate, some near fine copies, or better, are the order of the day. In our opinion (and for what it's worth), they represent excellent value for money and are deserving of a wider audience.
