They are, if I remember correctly, as by Robert Wade.

As for Max Thursday books, I've liked them all. "Wrong Mr. Blue" is the best of those I've read, even though the basic premise is a bit implausible. The first one (the title?) was also very good. Check out also "Badge of Evil" as by Whit Masterson. It has no moral ambiguity of Welles's "Touch of Evil", which is based on it, but a good book nevertheless. (And it's interesting to note how a genius like Welles treats the book, tears it up and recollects it.)
