David Dodge

David Dodge lived in Southern California and worked in a number of different jobs before becoming involved with an amateur group of playwrights, producers and actors. It was during this period that he began writing, if only on a very casual basis.

It was while reading a mystery novel that he made a bet with his wife that he could write a better one and this resulted in his first published novel Death and Taxes in 1941. The novel featured James "Whit" Whitney who was a San Francisco based tax expert who was reluctantly drawn in as a detective. Three more "Whit" novels followed.

Although he wrote other series novels it was the publication of To Catch A Thief that would bring him his greatest success thanks to the fact that Alfred Hitchcock purchased the movie rights to the novel before it was even published.

Two of Dodge's novels were published by Hard Case Crime. Plunder of the Sun was republished in 2005 and The Last Match was published in 2006. This last novel was discovered as an unpublished manuscript after Dodge's death and was published 35 years after his last novel.
