Book Ad of the Week: RANSOM (1973)

April 24, 1973

by Jon Cleary
William Morrow & Company, 1973

This is third novel in the Australian mystery series by Jon Cleary (The Sundowners) featuring Sydney homicide detective Scobie Malone, following The High Commissioner (1966) and Helga's Web (1970). Rod Taylor played Scobie in THE HIGH COMMISSIONER (1968) and Jack Thompson played him in SCOBIE MALONE (1975), based on Helga's Web, but a major motion picture based on Ransom was never made.
