I've only read I MARRIED A DEAD MAN, but I'm looking forward to trying something else by him. I understand that he was a big name in mystery writing in the 40s.

--Not just the '40s, but till his latter '60s death and beyond. The films, REAR WINDOW etc., didn't hurt. He was definitely a favorite at EQMM and SAINT MYSTERY MAGAZINE, when they could get a reprint or new story or...

I think it was Frank Gruber that told about how towards the end of his career he changed the name of old stories and resold them.
