Robertson Hobart Bibliography

UK First Edition Books

Robertson Hobart Pseudonym for Norman Lee

The following bibliography contains the criminous titles
I don't believe there are any US editions. His series character was Grant Vickary
I am unsure of the chronology of the last 2 titles
Collectors will find the books difficult to find as most of the print runs went to Public Libraries
Consequently they are collectable and relatively valuable in nice condition complete with dust jackets

Synopsis of TCOT Shaven Blonde
The body of a naked blonde is found lying beside a river in the Australian outback. As a result, Grant Vickary of the Vice Squad is loaned to the homicide patrol for the Case and lakes Oven from the State police. All trails lead to a sheet, rancher from a nearby Station. who is soon arrested for the murder of his beautiful wife. But then something strange happens. Though the first investigation ends in a cul-de-sac as far as Grant Vickary is concerned, his chief, the State Commissioner, holds different views. Vickary's problem is - shall he follow blindly his boss's directions, or risk a hunt for the killer which may end only in professional disaster? Vickary's decision and the ensuing twists and dangers before the final surprise, go to make ovary unusual detective story. completely authentic both in its background and its detail of Australian police methods.
