Rick Holman

Created by Carter Brown (pseudonym of Alan Geoffrey Yates; 1923-85)

Over thirty books were published relating the adventures of Hollywood private eye RICK LARRY HOLMAN, a "saviour of blackmailed film starlets," as one wag put it.

Prolific Australian author Carter Brown was also responsible for the adventures of private eyes Danny Boyd and Mavis Seidlitz, as well as the over-boiled Al Wheeler, a homicide cop with the sheriff's department of Pine City, near Los Angeles. All in all, Brown must have written hundreds of slim, trashy paperbacks; raunchy, spicy little romps about as nutritious as potato chips, and just as hard to resist. His other pseudonyms include Peter Carter Brown, Peter Carter-Brown, Raymond Glenning, Sinclair MacKellar, Dennis Sinclair and Paul Valdez.
