Eliot Reed Author Biography - Information About the Author
Eliot Reed aka Eric Ambler and Charles Rodda - a joint pseudonym.
The Eliot Reed books were published in America first except for the last two titles which did not get published in the USA.
Although a joint pseudonym Eric Ambler between Charles Rodda Ambler was not involved in Charter to Danger and Passport to Panic (presumably explains no American publication, Eric Ambler being the star billing here rather than Rodda), he waas only matginally involved in The Maras Affair, mostly Rodda's work.
The British first editions in dust jacket are rare, bigger print runs in America make the US editions less so.
The UK books are going to be expensive for book collectors, Eric Ambler sees to that not just rarity.
Readers are in trouble too as the books don't appear to have been reprinted, there are some American paperbacks but I can find no record of any UK paperbacks or later printings.
