James Hadley Chase's Collections

That all of Chase's works belonged to the crime genre cannot be disputed. Each and every story had the protagonist(s) who was/were somehow involved in murder / kidnapping / insurance fraud / robbery / espionage or simply caught up in a fatal attraction for a woman. Invariably,  at the end, no one gained anything and the protagonist often met a violent end. And that included the women also. Often, the women were the root cause of the trouble and were eliminated as the plots reached their gory end. This sadistic portrayal of women in his novels brought Chase in direct confrontation with  critiques, many of whom dismissed him as a 'pulp' fiction writer. However, as a  reader who has closely read, enjoyed and tried to study the author's psyche, I would beg to differ. Chase always emphasized that crime or lust did not pay. His imagery, plots and writing were of the highest order and he would surely be recognized as an outstanding author in times to come.
