Unfortunately it was my first venture into his work, so have not been inclined to read anything else by him.


    I agree with Patrick on YOU'LL DIE NEXT. It was a bad novel and by no means the only bad one the very prolific Whittington wrote. Most of his novels I've read are good entertainments but only a few have real sparkle and a few are dogs. The quality of his westerns is a bit higher than his mysteries.
