Description

George Bellairs was the pseudonym of Harold Blundell (1902-1985), a Manchester banker with close connections with the University of Manchester. He was born in Lancashire and married Gwladys Mabel Roberts in 1930. In the late 1950s he moved to the Isle of Man and became a full-time writer. Some of his detective novels are set on the Isle of Man. His series character was featuring Inspector (later Superintendent) Thomas Littlejohn. Many books appear from their titles to have an ecclesiastical theme. He also wrote four books using the pseudonym Hilary Landon. "One of the subtlest and wittiest practitioners of the simon-pure British detective story," New York Times "Mr Bellairs always gives good value" The Sunday Times "Bellairs works in a comic tradition that extends from Ben Jonson... Each character has a particular trait exaggerated to the point of obsession or caricature." Susan B. MacDougall
