Further Information
Jonathan Valin, born in America 1948, has one main series character, who I believe, appears in all the books listed above, Harry Stoner. Stoner is an American Private Eye, born of the hard-boiled school. He is a good solid character and always well set, the books are deserving of wider appreciation on this side of the Atlantic. In all cases, the American editions precede the English 1st editions. I have been unable to find record of some titles being released in the UK. As they are not listed in the British Library, or indeed elsewhere, we presume there was no British edition.
