Charles Williams Audio Books

Charles Williams (1909–1975) was one of the preeminent authors of American crime fiction. At the end of World War II, Williams began writing fiction while living in San Francisco. The success of his backwoods noir Hill Girl (1951) allowed him to quit his job and write full time. Although originally published by pulp fiction houses, his work won great critical acclaim. Many of his novels were adapted for the screen, such as Dead Calm (published in 1963) and Don’t Just Stand There! (published in 1966), for which Williams wrote the screenplay. Williams died in California in 1975.
