Search - List of Books by Lionel White

Lionel White (1905 – December 1985) was an author whose dark noirish stories were sometimes made into films. His books include The Money Trap, Death takes the bus, Clean Break (adapted by Stanley Kubrick as the basis for his 1956 film, The Killing), and Obsession (adapted by Jean-Luc Godard as the basis for his 1965 film, Pierrot le fou) and by the Finnish director Seppo Huunonen for the 1974 film The Hair (Karvat) and Rafferty, adapted by 1980 Soviet Lenfilm production of the same title. He died in December 1985. Seven years later, Quentin Tarantino, in his film Reservoir Dogs, credited White, among others, as an inspiration.

White had been a crime reporter and began writing suspense novels in the 1950s. He wrote more than 35 books, all translated into a number of different languages. His earlier novels were published as Gold Medal pulp hard-boiled crime fiction, but when Duttons began a line of mystery and suspense books, he also wrote for them. He was most well known as what a New York Times review described as "the master of the big caper."
