The world in my pocket by James Hadley Chase


'The world in my pocket' is a mystery thriller written by James Hadley Chase. 
I became a fan of this brilliant writer when I was a teenager and his books were a craze among us in India too. I have a good number of his books in my library. 

James Hadley Chase is a pseudonym he used among others like James L. Docherty, R. Raymond, Raymond Marshall, and Ambrose Grant. René Lodge Brabazon Raymond ( 1906 - 1985 ) was an English writer who penned  numerous thrillers, almost all of them became best sellers. 

This book has a gripping plot about a group of men and a woman who try to steal an armored truck containing a huge amount of money. The group became tempted to execute this risky theft because of the enormous sum involved and they will become rich, if everything goes well according to the plan, well..if everything goes well ! Things go wrong, like in most of his books, with twists and turns to reach a very peculiar ending. 

Catchy titles, crisp writing style, thoroughly researched plot were some of the reasons his books became super sellers.  

His books are still popular here. 
Hats off to this great writer ! May his soul rest in peace !
