“A shocking tale of vile, ruthless gangsterism.” - from an early paperback blurb. Attached is a very nice, old paperback book cover, from which I took the blurb.

From Amazon:

"James Hadley Chase is the master of crime fiction, not to be confused with mystery, suspense or simple thrillers. He goes deep into his characters [sic] makeup and motivation for crime. No Orchids for Miss Blandish is one of his classics about a crime family kidnapping a rich girl for a ransom. However the relationships that develop between the girl and her captives, and the conflict between the family members go beyond a simple crime. Despite reading it several times, and watching the movie, it has not lost its fascination for me, like many of Chase's books."

Here's what another individual writes, also from Amazon:

"Chase was a serial plagiarist, and also made a play at copying "The Big Sleep". Chandler, faster off the mark than Faulkner, hit him with a lawsuit and forced the book off the market."

I'm looking forward to reading this. I hope you will, too.
