MacLeod, Robert Parker

About the author

Robert Parker MacLeod (1928–99) was a pen name used by the Scottish journalist and writer Bill Knox. He was born in Glasgow, and was the youngest journalist ever taken on by a Glasgow newspaper (I haven’t been able to confirm which one) – a mere sixteen. He wrote over 50 crime novels, taking a rare discursion into the world of the horse under the name Robert Parker MacLeod.
