Further Information
Peter Antony, pseudonym for the twin brothers Anthony and Peter Shaffer, born in Liverpool 15 May 1926. Both educated at Trinity College, Cambridge. As well as the above they also wrote numerous stage and television plays. The series character for the mystery books was Mr Verity. Some of the books were issued under their joint real names. Whilst the plotting and backgrounds are pretty much what we are used to elsewhere, the dialogue is what sets them apart. Sparkling, dry and humorous.
