Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553546392, Mass Market Paperback)By the authors of the THAT DARN CAT series (of Walt Disney movie fame), the best of their acclaimed and bestselling FBI series, starring agent John Ripley. Mr. Gorden was an FBI counterintelligence agent during WWII. Mildren Nixon Gordon and Gordon Gordon, born 1905 and 1906 respectively, began their careers as journalists and turned to writing thrillers. One of their characters, John Ripley, is an FBI agent. The first Ripley book was FBI Story, 1950. It was dedicated to J Edgard Hoover and reflected an admiring view of the agency; throughout the Gordons' work, operatives are shown to be tough, able, and honest, ready to sacrifice themselves for others. The four other Ripley novels appeared sporadically between 1954 and 1973. The Gordons also wrote non-series novels including Power Play 1966 in which the head of the FBI retires and there is a battle over the succession. The couple also collaborated on a popular subgenre of mysteries about cats. The first, Undercover Cat 1963 was made into the popular Walt Disney movie That Darn Cat! in 1965. Much like Rinehart and Eberhart, the Gordons turned the refinements of thirties writing-- its social mulieu, the amateur status the sleuth and the controlled element of romance-- into matter for psychological suspense fiction.
