William Ard Back in Print
A Double Shot of Timothy Dane by William Ard
THE PERFECT FRAME and .38
With an Introduction by Francis M. Nevins
In 1951 William Ard, in response to the wave of sadism and cruelty that was personified in the novels of Mickey Spillane, introduced Timothy Dane, a kinder, gentler PI. He set the tone for a series of Timothy Dane mysteries and Ramble House is proud to be bringing them back, two at a time, for all the young readers who may have missed the great William Ard. It's also for us oldsters who remember reading Ard the first time but can't easily find the rare Monarch and Popular Library vintage paperbacks.
Read Francis M. Nevins' informative introduction to see why William Ard matters and why all of his books need to be brought back into print.
(Ed here:Ard also created and wrote (under the name Jonas Ward) The Buchanan western series, a fine long running Gold Medal, one of which became a pretty good Randolph Scott movie. ,
