About the Author: Lionel White

Lionel White was a crime reporter who wrote around 38 suspenseful thrillers beginning with 'The Snatchers' in 1953 and ending with 'The Walled Yard' in 1978.

Most of his books were translated into a number of different languages and his earlier novels were published as Gold Medal pulp hard-boiled crime fiction, but when Duttons began a line of mystery and suspense books, he also wrote for them.

He was most well known for what a New York Times review described as "the master of the big caper."

A number of his books were made into movies and Stanley Kubrick liked his book 'Clean Break' (1955), later re-released as 'The Killing' so much that he licensed the rights for his film 'The Killing' in 1956.

In Quentin Tarantino's film 'Reservoir Dogs', Lionel White is listed as an inspiration for the film in the credits.
