Three FREE eBooks By Writer James Hadley Chase

This is really big! He’s mostly out of print, forgotten by most of publishing (except for Harlequin), and readers like me are frustrated by not being able to read everything he wrote.

Yesterday, via olympiapress on Twitter, I learned there are three eBook editions of James Hadley Chase for free — including the epic one that is immortal:


This novel is cited again and again in reference works about noir, crime fiction, and outsider writers. I’ve never had a chance to read it because it’s been out of print. Now I will!

    He is a great author. I love his stories. I have most of his novels in hard copy. My dad started the collection in late 70’s and I took over in the 90’s. Now i hunt in the almost extinct used book stores and occasionally find a copy i haven’t read.
