(1903-1989) US author active from the publication of "Room Number 23" (20 June 1925 Flynn's Detective Fiction), which is a locked room tale; most of the 100 or more thrillers written under both his own name, and as by Hugh Pentecost, the pseudonym under which he was best known, date however from the 1960s and 1970s. Of sf interest is Red War (1936) with Thomas M Johnson, a Near Future tale in which an accelerating War is spurred on by a Communist conspirator who threatens to take over the world. [JC]
