Francis Selwyn Biography - Information About the Author
Francis Selwyn was born in 1935.
I believe the author also wrote a number of non-fiction titles.
Back in the "olden days" when you went to secondhand bookshops to find books these were very scarce in our experience.
The internet changes things, of course, but I still wouldn't describe all the titles as common especially in fine collectable condition.
paperbacks are available for readers, indeed they were reissued by Orion in the 2000s.
This is a very popular series amongst those hwo know it, deserving of wider recognition within the historical crime fiction genre.
