Patrick Quentin

Patrick Quentin is one of the pseudonyms of Hugh Callingham Wheeler (1912-1987). Wheeler was born in London but moved to the United States in 1934 and became a U.S. citizen. After producing more than 30 mystery novels, Wheeler gravitated to the stage and wrote the book for A Little Night Music, Candide, and Sweeney Todd, all of which earned him Tony awards. Two Peter Duluth novels inspired films: Homicide for Three (1948) and Black Widow (1954), which starred Van Heflin, Gene Tierney, Ginger Rogers and George Raft.
