Further Information
Lionel Davidson, born 1922 - died 2009, is something of a mystery to us! A superb writer whose output, whilst not prodigious, is of superior quality. It is incredible that he is not better known. Those familiar with his work are well aware of his ability to craft great characters and put them in in vivid settings, often abroad. His achievements have been recognised by the Crime Writers Association, he was a three times CWA Gold Dagger Winner. The books are collectable with Rose of Tibet being, in our experience, the rarest book. The cheap nature of the Gollancz yellow jackets makes fine copies particularly difficult to locate. Anybody not familiar with this writer could do a lot worse than trying at least one book, we highly recommend him.
