Joseph Hone Author Biography - Information About the Author
Joseph Hone, born 1937 and died 2016, is listed in Hubin's crime fiction "bible" his work is espionage / spy in genre rather than traditional crime and mystery fiction.
This JOseph HOne bibliography contains the author's non-fiction work too, every publication held by the major UK libraries so it should be a complete list of books.
Faber and Faber reissued the Peter Marlow novels in a uniform set of paperbacks in 2014.
The Peter Marlow books are sought after by book collectors, having read them all I can say they are excellent books in the spy genre, deserving of greater recognition.
The first editions in dust jacket are tricky to find, short print runs and library allocations make fine copies difficult to locate. Expect prices to reflect this though they are not prohibitive for serious collectors.
Readers are well-served with paperbacks readily available form online sellers
