It is with great sadness, especially at this time of year, that we have to report that after a spending short time in hospital following a fall, Guy passed away this morning (24th Dec 2020). Guy had tested positive for COVID-19. We are all in shock at the moment and will put more information here when we have it available. Our thoughts go out to his wife Jean and his four children.
Guy had some titles in production and we suspect these will be published in the new year.
The casebook of Raymond Odell
From the mind of horror legend Guy N. Smith, and collected together for the first time in one volume, are the cases of Raymond Odell, the famous Dover Street detective. Featuring thirteen stories including some never-before published and the brand-new tale ‘The Poisoners’.|
Today modern technology plays a major role in the solving of crimes and mysteries.
Yet this was not so half a century ago and often the police failed in their efforts to solve cases.
This was when a victim of crime called in a private detective who had less restrictions to hinder his investigations. Such was Raymond Odell and his young assistant Tommy Bourne. Their cases were many and varied, ranging from murder, robbery and fraud to the occasional brush with the occult.
Danger lurked in numerous investigations, but most were brought to a successful conclusion. Both petty and master criminals were brought to justice by a process of good old-fashioned deduction and perseverance.
Book is a available as paperback of 208 pages.
