About the Author
John Harris, who also wrote under the pen names of Mark Hebden and Max Hennessy, was born in 1916. He authored the best-selling and later filmed The Sea Shall Not Have Them, a story of survival and rescue from World War II that continues to be periodically screened on TV. He was a sailor, an airman, a journalist, a travel courier, a cartoonist, and a history teacher. During the war, Harris managed to serve with two air forces and two navies. After turning to full-time writing, he wrote adventure stories, war novels, political thrillers, and also created a sequence of crime novels around the quirky French Chief Inspector Pel, centered primarily in Burgundy, but occasionally Paris and elsewhere. Harris was unusually versatile and wide ranging as an author. His epics, modern war-at-sea stories, African adventure novels, wide-ranging crime, mysteries, and historical fiction, all guarantee a whole library of diverse and entertaining reading full of dry wit and gripping prose.
