Kem Bennett Author Biography - Information About the Author
Kem Bennett, Kemys Deverell, was born in 1919 and died in 1986 re University of Oxford Libraries, and is in Hubin's crime and mystery guide book.
We've taken this bibliography way beyond Hubin so this should be a complete list of published books, although some short stories in magazines etc could well be missing, we've included everything we could find in every available resource and library.
The main books lean to the thriller or espionage genre, set in the Cold War. They are collectable and uncommon in nice condition complete with dust jacket. They should not be prohibitively expensive, in book collecting terms, but don't expect to find them for nothing and if you do snatch them up
