Further Information
Frank Lester, born 1909 to 1976, was a pseudonym for Frank Hugh Usher who also wrote as Charles Franklin. His main series character was Geoffrey Slade. The books appear not to have had any American release. The majority of these books went to public libraries so nice collectable copies are not that easy to locate.
