Brief History - Biography

Lynn Brock was born in Ireland in 1877 and died 1943. His real name was Alister McAllister, he did use another pseudonym as well, namely Anthony Wharton. His main series character was Colonel Gore, Warwick Gore was ably assisted by Sergeant Venn. His writing style leans towards the more complex plotting, whilst satisfying in as much as they give the reader something to think about, he sometimes pushes the limits of Ronald Knox's 10 Commandments. .
