In “The Reconciliation,” a husband employs private detectives but then changes his mind about a divorce once their findings are revealed. In “Licensed to Kill,” a honeymoon soon turns into a manhunt when a former Royal Marine commando employs the tricks of his trade.

About the Author

Nicholas Monsarrat (1910–1979) was born in Liverpool and was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge. He served in World War II, first as a member of an ambulance brigade and then as a member of the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve. His lifelong love of sailing made him a capable naval officer, and he served with distinction on a series of small warships. Resigning his wartime commission in 1946, he entered the diplomatic service. He turned to writing full time in 1959, settling on the Mediterranean island of Gozo until his death.
