Macdonald Hastings Biography - Information About the Author
Macdonald Hastings, born 1909 (re the British Library). We've included the American first edition publications as and when applicable. British editions precede US books in all cases.
We've included some titles which are not crime fiction in nature, I believe all his crime and mystery books feature his series character. Readers are well served with Penguin paperback reissues and also later printings, some noted in the bibliography.
Collectors will find the books reasonably priced, a full set in dust jackets is within grasp and they benefit from some decent artwork too.
