3 "canadian titles" of Chase are indicated (for example) in the old edition of "Crime Fiction. 1749-80" by Allen. J. Hubin (NY, London, 1984)and in the encyclopedia "Twenty-century crime and mystery writers" (Chicago & London: St. James Press, 1991) As to "mafia/gangster novel" by Chase... Probably You talk about the book " He Lived Only For Revenge ". On a cover by which one the artful publisher has placed a name of Chase. Actually this novel is called " The Vendetta " (NY: Fawcett Gold Medal, 1973). Author is american hard-boiled and western writer Nick Quarry (pseudonym of Marvin Hubert Albert, 1924-1996).

" The Vendetta " is the chronological prequel for "The Don Is Dead"
(NY: Fawcett Gold Medal, 1972)
