Biography

American writer, a mystery novelist whose works feature Lt. Frank Hastings of the San Francisco police department. His protagonist is unique in being neither hard-boiled nor eccentric but actually rather dull. His mysteries are known for their mastery of police procedure and for intriguing plot devices. Wilcox was the only American mystery writer invited by a Japanese publisher to write a novel specifically for the Japanese market.

Formerly an ad copywriter, an art teacher, a partner in a furniture store and owner and designer of a lamp store, Wilcox published his first novel in 1967, "The Black Door." Since then, he has turned out some 30 books.

He died of cancer at his San Francisco home 7/12/1996.
