James Hadley Chase Rene Brabazon Raymond was born in London in 1906 and started his career as a bookseller With the aid of a dictionary of American slang and reference books on the American underworld he wrote his first novel NO ORCHIDS FOR MISS BLANDISH over six weekends The book achieved remarkable popularity and became one of the best sold books of the decade FLESH OF THE ORCHID is a wild, thrill-ride of a sequel to NO ORCHIDS Taking up the story 22 years late, the central figure is once again a Blandish girl, but Carol Blandish is not the helpless victim that her mother was. Indeed she is a volatile blend of simmering sexuality, strained innocence and hair trigger cruelty Her explosive outbursts of savage violence make her a force to be reckoned with Escaping from a mental institute during a raging storm, and definitely off her meds Carol Blandish is soon pursued by a seedy cast of characters who all want a piece of the Blandish fortune The novel bristles with crazy plot twists, edge-of-the-seat suspense and intriguing low-life's who mix it up for an immensely enjoyable read
