Lawrence Treat Biography
American born writer Lawrence Treat is a pseudonym for Lawrence Arthur Goldstone who was born in 1903 and died in 1998
As well as the mystery fiction books listed above there are many short stories appearing in magazines such as
Detective Fiction Weekly - Black Mask - Sleuth Mystery Magazine UK first editions are rarer than the American books (due to print runs)
The books benefit form such great dust jacket cover artwork
Personally, I prefer the British artwork but that could be a natural bias
