A close friend of mine was a film student at the University of Texas under Professor Rod Whittaker at the time that Whittaker's pseudonymous first best-seller was published. Apparently they were good enough friends that my friend knew Whittaker was planning to use the Trevanian name during the period the book was being written and before fame attached itself to the pseudonym.
