Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

In the millionaire's playground of Paradise City, the sinister Ticky Edris is planning the perfect heist. It's taken him years to set up a bank robbery in broad daylight, and with only two accomplices needed: a smooth con man and a smart beautiful blonde. As Ticky's plan gets put into action, luck is on his side, but as people start dying and disappearing, detective Tom Lepski picks up the trail. Suddenly, Ticky's plan is in danger, and if there is one thing he didn't count on, it was the personalities of the very people who are most vital to his plan.

About the Author:

James Hadley Chase was the pseudonym of successful British crime writer René Brabazon Raymond. Born in 1906 to a British colonel in the Indian Army, he was educated at King's School, Rochester in Kent and later studied in Calcutta. Leaving home at eighteen, he forewent an intended scientific career to work as an encyclopaedia salesman and book wholesaler. Inspired by the works of hardboiled American crime writers, Chase published his first novel, No Orchids for Miss Blandish, in 1938. It achieved remarkable popularity, and Chase dedicated himself to writing full time. He developed a number of dynamic series characters that featured in fast moving tales of murder, blackmail and espionage. At the time, his novels were controversial for their use of violence and sex, full of deadly villains and treacherous beautiful women. Although Chase set many of his books in America, he never lived there, instead deriving his knowledge from encyclopaedias, detailed maps, and a slang dictionary. During WWII, he served in the Royal Air Force, eventually achieving the rank of Squadron Leader (and simultaneously editing the RAF Journal). As an author he wrote more than eighty thrillers and enjoyed an enormous worldwide following. Translated into dozens of languages, his books have been widely adapted for film and television. Living a secluded life, Chase moved to France in 1956, and then to Switzerland in 1961. He died in 1985.
