   Somebody got to stop me because i'll be answering all the questions in less than 24hrs  wink
Re: James Hadley Chase Novels: Share Your Experience by cushman(m): 7:14pm On Jan 25, 2006
@nicetohave, your quiz answers:


1) The first James Hadley Chase novel is No Orchids for Miss Blandish
Published: 1939

2) Millionaire Mr Blandish's grand daughter is Mary Clare


I'll answer number three later... i need a recess grin grin grin
Re: James Hadley Chase Novels: Share Your Experience by nicetohave(m): 8:20pm On Jan 25, 2006
nice, nice cushman but make sure you answer number three and recheck your answers before submitting the final answer so you wont hit back at me like Bagoma, right now my lips are lipsrsealed
Re: James Hadley Chase Novels: Share Your Experience by cushman(m): 10:21pm On Jan 25, 2006
I've changed my mind. I think i should give others chance to participate. Bagoma should answer question three for me.
Re: James Hadley Chase Novels: Share Your Experience by nicetohave(m): 2:51am On Jan 26, 2006
Bagoma is opting out too, i think i'll have to recruit more NL into this............Jalal, kallylove,ty4eva what do y'all think?
Re: James Hadley Chase Novels: Share Your Experience by cushman(m): 1:13pm On Jan 26, 2006
@nicetohave, please don't get me wrong. I'm still in the game.


Because we don't stop and we don't quit wink

hey guys,sorry am a bit late on this topic,but
don't leave me out, am also a fan of JHC, and mark girland is the bomb!
Re: James Hadley Chase Novels: Share Your Experience by cushman(m): 6:31pm On Jan 31, 2006
Hey @justme, welcome to the club. I think Vito Ferrari is the bomb!
Re: James Hadley Chase Novels: Share Your Experience by nicetohave(m): 11:12pm On Feb 01, 2006
Vito Ferrari only featured in "his way for a shroud" he's good but i dont like him embarassed if youre voting, chose between Tom lepski, Vic Malloy and Mark Girland, those are regular and more interesting characters.

Quiz four on the way.

cushman your prize will reach you, please be patient...........................my schedule had been crazy of late

Re: James Hadley Chase Novels: Share Your Experience by Jalal(m): 5:36pm On Feb 15, 2006
Hey Bagoma, lets give Nice2have a little treat ok
Here goes, sorry if i broke all da rules!!!!!

CHAPTER ONE
BELIEVE THIS U’LL BELIEVE ANYTHING, I once had a girl called EVE, she was a COME EASY GO EASY, type of gal. She would HAVE A NICE NIGHT with anyone STRICTLY FOR CASH, she was very beautiful as GOLDFISH HAVE NO HIDING PLACE, well being a jealous chap our liason was going the WAY THE COOKIE CRUMBLES……………………………………

CHAPTER TWO
So I planned that she would be SAFER DEAD and MY LAUGH WOULD COME LAST, not that I was BELIEVED VIOLENT, but THE WHIFF OF MONEY and the FAST BUCK was THE DOLLS BAD NEWS and YOU CAN SAY THAT AGAIN cos she WAS TRUSTED LIKE THE FOX, anyway she had BUT A SHORT TIME TO LIVE, and I WILL LAY HER AMONG THE LILIES buried in a COFFIN FROM HONGKONG……………………………………

CHAPTER THREE
My plan made me feel high, as if i had the WORLD IN MY POCKET, until MALLORY her lover, who had AN EAR TO THE GROUND had the luck to GET A LOAD OF THIS my plan, he cornered me trying to blackmail me saying “I HOLD THE FOUR ACES now, I denied it and told him “YOU MUST BE KIDDING, besides WHY PICK ON ME?.He said if you don’t cooperate then CONSIDER YOURSELF DEAD!!! I replied I aint scared of you’re a$$ and watch it cos U’VE GOT IT COMING!! Later that night I engaged the services of a HIT AND RUN driver, gave him a bottle of beer and said HAVE THIS ONE ON ME and told him my plan, he gave me a leery grin and said “THERES ALWAYS A PRICE TAG for anything, YOU HAVE YOURSELF A DEAL, pally”!!! “HIT THEM WHERE IT HURTS most”, I told him referring to Mallory and his goons. “LIKE A HOLE IN THE HEAD?”, he enquired, “U jus FIND HIM AND I”LL FIX HIM boss”, he muttered.
That night, Mallory’s crumpled body went THIS WAY FOR A SHROUD. I then went over to Eve’s and said “WELL NOW MY PRETTY……, ”and for the last time tasted THE FLESH OF THE ORCHID, haha THE THINGS MEN DO!!! Then I strangled her, now I’LL BURY MY DEAD, then HAVE A CHANGE OF SCENE. Maybe a MISSION TO SIENNA? Who knows!!! Anyway since the DEAD STAY DUMB, THE GUILTY ARE (not) AFRAID!!!!!,

CHAPTER FOUR
3 MONTHS LATER………………….

ONE BRIGHT SUMMER MORNING, as I was relaxing on the beach and watching the scantily clad girls having fun on an island off the Florida keys, I came across CADE, I couldn’t get my eyes off her body…, we got talking and later went up to my hotel room, where I gave her a SHOCK TREATMENT!! FIGURE IT OUT FOR YOURSELF she fell flat for me!!!!, well as they THE VULTURE IS A PATIENT BIRD, we are getting married!!! And I think I will CATCH THE TIGER BY THE TAIL and invite Tom Lepski, Maddox and the maestro James Hadley Chase himself,to the wedding and of course u guys at NL are invited too!!! Mr Nice2have will be my best man, Bagoma, u can be a bridesmaid!!! Cushman can u be the usher
THIS IS FOR REAL, yes o!!! If u don’t believe it, then TELL IT TO THE BIRDS!!! Anyway I gave all you guys the SUCKER PUNCH!!!!!!! Hahahahahahahahahahaahha

**Rain was falling heavily, and the wind felt bleak against his face. He stood for some seconds looking at the embankment, letting his eyes become accustomed to the darkness. Nothing moved. He would have to take a chance, he thought, and ran the landing plank, from the barge, down to the wet tarmac. He slid down the plank, gained the dark shadows and again paused to listen. Again he heard nothing to alarm him. His fingers tightened on the flail and keeping close to the embankment wall, he walked silently to the distant steps that led to the upper embankment. **

Can anyone tell me the title of this Chase?
