Further Information
Francis Clifford, born 1 December 1917 and passed away in 1975, was a pen name for Arthur Leonard Bell Thompson. He served with great distinction during the Second World War and was awarded the Distinguished Service Order. The above checklist only includes his mystery fiction, there were four other books written which were primarily war based. As with some other authors we have touched on, Clifford tends to lean more to the thriller rather than a strict criminous theme. English editions precede the American editions and there are a couple of alternative titles, which we have noted. There are no known series characters and, unusually, the later books tend to be better than the earlier ones.
