Editorial Reviews


"Harry Whittington was one of the half-dozen most consistently inventive and entertaining of all the writers who specialized in paperback originals during the 1950s and 1960s." --Bill Pronzini

"Harry Whittington was the king of plot and pace, and he could write anything well. He's 100 percent perfect entertainment." --Joe R. Lansdale

Whittington weaves a story so well with such characters, they just pop off the page. --Bruce Grossman, Bookgasm

About the Author

Harry Whittington was born in Occala, Florida, in 1915. When his family moved to a nearby farm, Harry survived his family s rural poverty by reading books and sneaking into the local movie theater. Another escape was his writing. Ultimately the versatile Whittington would become known as King of the Paperbacks, publishing over 170 original paperback novels, using nearly 20 different names. Before his death in 1989, Whittington also carved out a second career writing Southern historical novels as Ashley Carter. Today he is best known for the lurid and brisk noir novels he wrote between 1950 and 1960.

7 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Midwest Book Review on November 13, 2009
The early days of the pulp novel were one often distinguished by deliberate author anonymity. "To Find Cora/Like Mink, Like Murder/Body and Passion" is a collection of three mysteries with a particularly strong noir influence. Originally published under pseudonyms, Whittington's work is now published under his own name, many years after his death. A choice pick of his hundreds of novels of work, "To Find Cora/Like Mink, Like Murder/Body and Passion" is a top pick for mystery fans which should not be passed up.
