The Accused and The Snatch by Harold R. Daniels

In 1955, technical writer Harold R. Daniels made a stab at a career as a mystery writer. His debut left an impression on New York Times columnist Anthony Boucher, and he ended up shortlisted for the Edgar Award. Unsurprisingly, Daniels went on to more considerable success, and three years later, iconic mystery author John D. MacDonald was singing his praises, remarking that his novel The Snatch “belongs among the modern classics of crime and punishment.”

This month, Stark House Press reissued The Accused and The Snatch, Daniels’ famed third and fourth novels, as a double-novel collection. The volume includes the scholarly essay “The Solidly Considerable Talent of Harold R. Daniels,” penned by the editor of Lowestoft Chronicle. 

You can purchase the book from online retailers like Amazon and Barnes and Noble or directly from the publisher.
