Further Information
John Buxton Hilton In his own words

I suppose I am less interested in puzzles—and certainly less in violence—than m character, local colour, folk-lore, social history, and historical influences, most of which loom large in most of my books. With these ingredients I try to write the sort of books that 1 wish 1 could find to read. I believe that the distinction between suspense fiction and the "literary" novel is an unreal one and my effort is to bridge the gap. Consequently 1 believe that my books should appeal to readers of some literary sensitivity who do not normally read "thrillers."

Overview
English editions precede their American counterparts in all circumstances. The books are well liked though seem to be of greater interest to readers than collectors. This makes them excellent value and a full set of first editions can be put together for a very reasonable sum. British editions should all carry a price on the inside front flap
