Brief History - Biography

Eliot Reed was a pseudonym used by Eric Ambler. The books were written with Charles Rodda. There were only five in total and the last two were not released in America. The first two 1sts were published first in the US with priority reversing for the third. Ambler was a hugely important and influential author in the spy / thriller genre with his early work being some of the most sought after first editions in genre. So good is the narrative in the primary work that they pretty much overshadow the Eliot Reed series. It is probably fair to say that today interest in these works is confined largely to collectors rather than general readers.
