James Hadley Chase

James Hadley Chase is the pen-name for English born Londoner Rene Brabazon Raymond. His style was clear and precise and was more of a send up of the hard-boiled crime novels from more noted American authors, but the sheer bulk of his work and the swift narrative meant that he was widely read around the world.

Although Chase wrote a wide range of stand-alone novels along with many series characters that were used for a brief period before they were "retired" and the next series commenced. This resulted in many two or three book series featuring memorable characters such as reporter and detective Mark Fenner, private eye Bricktop Corrigan, insurance investigator Steve Marmas, adventurer Don Micklem, Florida PI Frank Terrell and others.

His novels were generally set in an imaginative American city and the prose and dialogue was somewhat over the top in terms of the colorful slang that was used. Rather than be overly bothered with character development he was more inclined to immerse himself in the plot and ran with it as fast as he possibly could.
