About the book

NORMAN CONQUEST doesn't need to look for trouble. He attracts itjust as a lightning conductor attracts lightning. Now travelling blithely to Bournemouth on a perfectly innocent mission to buy a new car, Conquest was unconsciously heading into one of the most exciting dramas of his career: A few hours later he was making the return journey in amazing and unexpected circumstances. Racing through the night, he crouched at the wheel of a great motor lorry roaring its way along the main road to London. Ahead lay the darkness of the New Forestdarknessdangerdeath. Norman grinned. His sixth sense had never let him downand his sixth sense told him that he was on the trail of high adventure. In Blonde for Danger Mr. Berkeley Gray touches a new high spot in his famous Norman Conquest stories.

About the Author

Berkeley Gray

Berkeley Gray was a British novelist, whose real name was Edwy Searles Brooks. He also wrote under the pen-names Victor Gunn, Rex Madison and Carlton Ross. He was born in Hackney, London and is believed to have written around 40 million words.


In 1912 he wrote his first Sexton Blake stories and in 1915 started writing stories for the Nelson Lee Library, becoming the lead writer of the detective series after which the publication was named. In 1917 he started the St. Frank's series in that paper, the stories for which he is best remembered. Additional serial assignments followed, including those featuring Clive Derring and Sexton Blake. In 1918 he launched the character of Rupert Waldo, an early superhero.


His serialised novels included the Norman Conquest and Ironsides Cromwell stories. Dare-Devil Conquest formed the basis for the 1954 movie Park Plaza 605 starring Tom Courtenay.
