Description's Source: From the publisher

With their erotic pin-up covers and hardboiled crime tales, the Hank Janson pulp paperback novels were a British publishing sensation in the 1940s and 1950s, selling millions of copies to readers craving escapism from post-war austerity. Prosecutions under Britain's then-harsh obscenity laws dealt them a severe blow, however, and today they are highly sought-after by collectors.

(Stephen D. Frances wrote every Hank Janson from When Dames Get Tough in 1946 through until at least 1959, returning to pen the occasional novel in the early 60s. From his departure up until the final novel, Grass Widow in 1971, most were written by Harry Hobson, Harold Kelly, Colin Fraser and James Moffatt.)
