Further Information
Edgar Box, pseudonym for Gore Vidal (Eugene Luther Vidal Jr) was born in America  3 October 1925. He served in the army and worked in politics. Most of his work were novels, plays and screenplays. He only wrote three mystery books and all featured his series character Peter Cutler Sargeant. The books are fairly pedestrian, in terms of plotting, though the settings do have an entertaining appeal. They seem to be enduring as well as they were reprinted many times in paperback. UK editions in jacket are not common though none of the above would be regarded as particularly rare or valuable.
