Hammond Innes is the pen name of English novelist Ralph Hammond Innes (1913-1998), who wrote mystery and thriller novels, children’s books and travel non-fiction books. He was known for a great attention to detail with his description of scenes. Innes wrote his protagonists as regular men who happened upon circumstance rather than traditional “heroes.” When in a hostile environment, the character must then use his own cleverness to get out of trouble, and not any kind of weapon or gadget.

Hammond Innes became a published author in 1937 with the novel Air Disaster. He continued writing until his 1996 final novel, The Delta Connection. Below is a list of Hammond Innes’ books in order of when they were originally published:
