Dhuaine Great list! Man, this was SO needed. I should keep a buy-when-it's-available list somewhere... although my previous one got lost because I kept getting depressed whenever I looked at it. There must be at least 30 books I want to read but cannot find. I don't remember them all now, but I will definitely add them when I recall the titles xD

Samantha Tew Deffinately check Amazon.com

Rory After devouring the Columbo television series I was shocked to learn that there were a bunch of paperbacks available.

https://www.goodreads.com/series/1162...

The trouble is they were, for the most part, only ever printed in America (I live in the UK) so they are very hard to come by. The closest books I can find are The Columbo Collection (written by the show's creator) and a later series written by a different author, but no sign of the originals.
