Hello, you all,

maybe somebody knows Joseph Jefferson Farjeon (London, June 4, 1883 - Hove
(Sussex), June 6, 1955) ; he was son of the better known novelist Benjamin Farjeon and brother of the children's writer Eleanor Farjeon and the playwright Herbert Farjeon. Although he was a descendant of Thomas Jefferson, Farjeon was named after his maternal grandfather, the American actor Joseph Jefferson. He was educated privately and at Peterborough Lodge. From 1910 to 1920 he did editorial work for the Amalgamated Press.

Farjeon was one of the first detective writers to mingle romance with crime. Among his 80 novels are: The Master Criminal, 1924; Little Things That Happen, 1925; Uninvited Guests, 1925; The Green Dragon, 1926 (rev. ed.: At the Green Dragon, 1929); No. 17: A Novel Based Upon the Play, 1926; The Crook's Shadow, 1927; The House of Disappearance, 1927; More Little Happenings, 1928; Shadows by the Sea, 1928; Mystery Underground, 1928 (in U.S.: Underground); The 5.18 Mystery, 1929; The "Z" Murders, 1929 (in the U.S.: The Person Called "Z"); The Appointed Date, 1930; Following Footsteps, 1930; The House Opposite, 1931; The Murderer's Trail, 1931; Phantom Fingers, 1931; Ben Sees It Through, 1932; Trunk Call, 1932 (in U.S.: The Trunk-Call Mystery); The House on the Marsh, 1933; The Mystery of the Creek, 1933; Old Man Mystery, 1933.

He wrote some short stories too, like "Waiting for the Police", 1946, Davis Publications Inc., 1964. I'm just looking for its rights, to develop a theatrical & tv treatment.

Could any of you help me to find the present Farjeon's copyright owner ? Thank you
