James Hadley Chase Novels Readers Let's Meet: Which Of The Novels Have You Read? by bullseye90(m): 8:02pm On Aug 17, 2016
James Hadley Chase (24 December 1906 – 6
February 1985) vwas an English writer. While
his birth name was René Lodge Brabazon
Raymond , he was well known by his various
pseudonyms, including James Hadley Chase,
James L. Docherty , Raymond Marshall , R.
Raymond , and Ambrose Grant . He was one of
the best known thriller writers of all time. The
canon of Chase, comprising 90 titles, earned him
a reputation as the king of thriller writers in
Europe. He was also one of the internationally
best-selling authors, and, so far, 50 of his books
have been made into films.

1. Some of his novels include:
2. No orchids for miss Blandish
3. The dead stays dumb
4. Twelve chinks and a woman
The doll's bad news
Miss shumway waves a wand
eve
I'll get you for this
flesh of the orchid
You never know with women
safer dead
well now my pretty
do me a favour drop dead
try this one for size
he won't need it now
the world in my pocket
just a matter of time
the vylture is a patient bird
mission to Venice
mission to sienna
figure it out yourself
you are lonely when you are dead
you find I'll fix him
hit and rum

Which one have you read, if its not one the list, add yours.

I have read about 2-3 when I was in secondary school but can't really remember the title, but there's one I can't forget "If you believe this, you will believe anything"! I really love his books, I don't mind if I can get any. Or is there any link to download them. I was reading one with something on jewellery robbery which included a lady that can't do without chocolates, I can't really recall the title but I couldn't finish the novel.

You can always download them online in PDF format. I had some soft copies in my former phones till it got stolen. Hadley chase novel is so full of suspense n it is d only novel I can comfortably read from front page to the end. I have read close to 56 of his novels

I have read all his books. I repeat all his books.
When we were kids,the books were selling for one Naira per copy.
The publishers Fagbamige publishers had the copyright in Nigeria in those days so the books were readily available to anyone who wanted to buy and read them. Those were the good old days in this country.
At times I go on the internet to re-read some of these books. A wonderful thriller writer who wrote thriller books about America but never once visited America.

Dats nice. I guess it must have been a long time ago. Hadley chase novel rocks. Just reading the novel n imagining is synonymous to watching a Hollywood movie little wonder most of his novels have been adapted into movies

The seventies.

Some of the Chase novels were actually written in the thirties but they are so timeless that they could have been written today.

@ Stevostical, I think the novel you're referring to is most likely to be 'The Paw in the Bottle' also by James Hadley Chase. It's a very interesting thriller and am sure you won't want to put it down until you finish reading it. I've also read quite a few of his novels, at least they won't be less than fifty, if not more than that. I started reading them from early 90s, 1992 to be precise, when i was still working in Lagos, Oshodi. I'm still looking for more titles including those that I have read and forgotten. In fact, I recently downloaded some titles on the net few weeks ago. Although the titles there aren't many but they are still something. I will try and post the link here for those who are interested. Cheers. sekesi2009@yahoo.com

OR
2.The paw in the bottle.
