Call me when Cross Turns Over, Gold in the Streets, The Big Smoke and

Evan Hunter – Strangers When We Meet (£2.50) I am pretty sure I still have a copy of his much more famous “Blackboard Jungle”

Al Morgan – The Six-Eleven (£2.50) I have A Small Success and One Star General also listed by the same author.
