A short potted history of the author Cyril Hare
Cyril Hare is the pseudonym of Judge Gordon Clark, who was born at Mickleham near Dorking in 1900. He was educated at Rugby, and New College, Oxford, where he took a ‘First’ in History.
At the bar his practice was largely in the criminal courts, and during World War II he was on the staff of the Director of Public Prosecutions; but as a County Court Judge his present work concerns civil disputes only, and his connexion with crime Unow purely fictional.
He has published a number of detective novels including Death is No Sportsman, When the Wind Blows, An English Murder, Tenant for Death, and That Yew Tree’s Shade. His own favourite and, perhaps, his best-known book is Tragedy at Law (Penguin 897). He is married with three children and lives in his native parish which, incidentally, is on his present circuit.
