Gerald Hammond

Gerald Hammond was born in 1926 and worked as an architect for thirty years before retiring at the beginning of the 80s. He has written over thirty mystery novels since the late 1960s and his books are often set in Scotland. Keen on shooting and fishing, it is not surprising that his books often feature characters with faithful dogs – such as the Detective Honey Laird series, which features an Edinburgh-based female detective with a labrador called Pippa.

He has also written under the pen-name of Arthur Douglas.
