Graeme has a series of bibliomysteries featuring Theodore Terhune that are a lot of fun. I have a bunch of his books and still haven't read them all. Didn't know about this one. Blackshirt was very popular in his day. Graeme's son Roderick Jeffries was a mystery writer, too.

I just checked my notes, John, and apparently Roderic continued his father's Blackshirt books with 20+ more novels, so my book total for Graeme may be a bit off. I couldn't find a lot of biographical/biblio info on Graeme, strangely. And most of his books are out of print and being sold for hundreds of dollars online.
