Jerome Odlum Author Biography - Information About the Author
Jerome Odlum was born in 1905 and died in 1954, he is listed in Hubin's crime fiction reference guide.
There is a long list of screenplays either written, co-written or inspired by Jerome Odlum.
His books are highly collectable, the early books in dust jacket are quite valuable, helped in no small part as they're also sought after by book collectors who collect in the film genre, especially noir.
The only British edition I can find is Nine Lives are Not Enough, a rare book, I can't recall ever seeing one let alone handling one in many a year. If you do see one it may well be ex-library, get it - you may not have another chance.
