RARA-AVIS: Re: Martin Brett

 From what I can figure out, Martin Brett and Malcolm Douglas were both pseudonyms of Douglas Sanderson, a Brit who moved to Montreal, became a Canadian citizen, and wrote several crime books in the late fifties/early sixties, including at least three featuring private eye Mike Garfin.

The one I've read, Blondes Are My Trouble, is pretty good. Not fantastic, but he actually makes some good use of Montreal as a setting.

If anyone else has any info on him, or any of his books, please don't be shy -- pass it on. Like this THE DEADLY GAMES you mentioned, Anders. Is it a P.I. novel?
