Further Information
John Phillips Marquand, was born in Delaware on 10th November 1893 and was a winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1938. The majority of his novels,  a further eighteen, are of a non-criminous nature and therefore not included here. Whilst these novels eclipsed his detective work in terms of critical acclaim the author himself even dismissed them as 'his literary disgrace', they did provide a popular and enduring series character. The author's literary ability shows itself clearly in the characters and settings, which evoke all the passion and atmosphere of their exotic locations. He passed away in 1960.
