Someone asked who authored the 1958 novel "I, Mobster." Its publisher listed the writer as "Anonymous," presumably in order to claim the author was really a murderous mobster. The internet movie database lists the novel's author as being one Joseph Hilton Smyth. Don't know if that piece of information solves the mystery or not. I've certainly never heard of Smyth. Anyone know of him?
