This bibliography list all of the author's books in order of publication.
He remains one of crime fiction's most collectable authors.
First edition is jackets are expensive, early ones are very expensive, if and when they turn up.
Some of the books are very rare indeed, many unseen in jackets by life-long collectors and book dealers.
American books are much more common than their UK counterparts, consequently less valuable, by some margin.
