Here is a 40 page copy of Figure it out for Yourself with a picture of fictional Orchid City created by JHC. I will post the full e-book of Figure it out for Yourself maybe by next week. What I’m trying to do is to create JHC e-books from my personal collection which I provide to JHC fans.
Unfortunately, I don’t have all the novels. So, if people can help me create some or if they can scan the entire novel and send me the scans so that I will create the e-book.
Some of the novels that I don’t have are:
-Lay Her Among The Lilies
-This Way For A Shroud
-I’ll Get You For This
-I’ll Bury My Dead
                                     etc
Please mail me at:

I read JHC novels as a secondary school boy then, after which i moved on to some other writers (Forseyth(?), Ludlom, sidney Shedon e.t.c) but i still have very fond memories of JHC and will relish any oppurtunity to download and read any of them now!!i think for people in Nigeria, you canget them in Surulere Lagos, Under the bridge on your way to Yaba, there are dozens there for sale!!!
Re: James Hadley Chase Novels: Share Your Experience by shinystar(m): 1:07pm On Dec 22, 2006
Abledules,

Are you sure the copies there are original and nor pirated? I saw some the other days but couldn't buy because they were pirated.

I really need to know where to buy original copies. As a teenager, I read an handful of them but lost many of the titles. Will like to keep them for my offsprings. Somebody pls help out.

Just thought I should point out to Balogun that, reading is not something of trend but interest; and an interest that transcends trend! Got it bro?

So guys, u all read what stimulates ur mind positively, very good ideas hardly age; James Hardley Chase's work remains a master piece! It's just captivating, shows a lot of adroitness in keeping his readers, Got it? lol

Re: James Hadley Chase Novels: Share Your Experience by iniowei: 1:25pm On May 07, 2007
His books are very interesting, the book in which a banker tries to rob the bank is titled: I WOULD RATHER STAY POOR. It is an interesting one like everyother, my favourite though remains; WHY PICK ON ME.Whether or not the one's I have are pirated, I do not know.

Hardley Chase was the best agreed.Hav u read Again the Ringer by Edgar Wallace.
Re: James Hadley Chase Novels: Share Your Experience by doyin13(m): 11:55pm On May 11, 2007
I can only comprehensively remember an ace up my sleeve. One of his novels was dramatized. It was 'Palmetto' starring Woody Harrelson and Liz Shue. Steamy sex scene included.
Re: James Hadley Chase Novels: Share Your Experience by Kwairanga(m): 6:55pm On May 16, 2007
I like this forum. it brought 2 mind sweet old memories. I recalled d time when I used to carry Chase wherever I was going to. i have read a lot oh his novels but my all time best remains 'Vulture is a patient bird'.

Vic Malloy, i am sending you a mail. kindly forward the full novel 'Figure it out for yourself' so that I can figure it out!

Any web site where I can get access to other Chase Novels?

Thanks.

I Am Now In My Late Thirties, But Cant forget James Hardley Chase, Any Youngster In The Late Seventies And Eighties, Who Did Not Read Hardley Or Nick Carter Need Have He's brain examined, Just Take A Clue from this titles, "There Is A Hippy On The Highway", Knock Knock Who Is There", An Orchid For Miss Brandish"," The Flesh Of The Orchid" "Come Easy Go Easy" "An Ear To The Ground" The Way The Cookies Crumbles" Well Now My Pretty" Belived Violent,Do Me a favor drop dead etc, i read over 95copies
The true line in all hardley's novel showed that hardly do crime pay, every crime leaves a tale sign that will always implicate the criminals, If I do happen to be the Inspector General Of Nigeri Police, I will recommend all chase novels as bible to the police.
Re: James Hadley Chase Novels: Share Your Experience by uyai(f): 4:31am On May 21, 2007
I was in primary 4/5 not quite sure. i remember dad telling me not touch any of those books that i do understand anything in it. Mom and i were playing srabble when i started telling her about " the way the cookies crumble" my mom called my dad to hear what i was saying. From then on i was given the green light to read. i became the " avid reader" of the family
Re: James Hadley Chase Novels: Share Your Experience by ashala(m): 5:50pm On May 25, 2007

Re: James Hadley Chase Novels: Share Your Experience by soulpatrol(f): 6:02pm On May 25, 2007
isn't the guy like dead?
Re: James Hadley Chase Novels: Share Your Experience by moondust(m): 2:26pm On Jun 01, 2007
doesnt stop him from remaining the best of them all
Re: James Hadley Chase Novels: Share Your Experience by moondust(m): 2:35pm On Jun 01, 2007
If he could do the things he did in the 70s u'd all agree with me that he's the King
I'm yet to see a better storyteller, honestly.
His 1st book I read was THIS WAY FOR A SHROUD and I've been hooked ever since.
I've read like 56 titles , here's some

Have this one on me
the vulture is a patient bird
coffin from hongkong
mallory
double shuffle
an ace up my sleeve
you find him, i'll fix him
the wary transgressor
so what happens to me
no orchids for miss blandish
shock treatment
goldfish have no hiding place
a whiff of money
you're better off dead
I hold the four aces
the way the cookie crumbles
and lots more!!!!!
Re: James Hadley Chase Novels: Share Your Experience by Banderas(m): 2:42pm On Jun 01, 2007
Hey. I used to like chase, until I read four books within 3 days. After this I found them quite monotonous - they all have the same theme - some guy commits a crime and "almost" gets away. They were okay when I was in secondary school, barely tolerable in uni, and totally unbearable afterwards.


Naah mate, there is a great deal of stuff out there that make JHC seem quite mediocre, he is in no way a great writer.
Re: James Hadley Chase Novels: Share Your Experience by viee(f): 2:48pm On Jun 01, 2007
