The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 (film-tie in)

Производитель: "Corgi Books"

Grand Central station, New York. 1:23pm. What starts as a normal day on the New York City subway becomes a race against time when a commuter train is hijacked. It is packed with passengers and the ransom is one million dollars. The NYPD frantically pursue the train on the city streets, but the question remains: the subway is a closed system surely there is no way out... But the four hijackers, led by a mercenary named Ryder, have thought about this. And once they receive their ransom money, they plan to send the train off at top speed toward the terminal station where it will crash, killing all the passengers...

John Godey

Morton Freedgood (* 1913 in Brooklyn, New York, NY, USA; † 16. April 2006 in West New York, New York) war ein US-amerikanischer Autor und Schriftsteller.

Freedgood begann in jungen Jahren das Schreiben. In den 1940er Jahren hatte er bereits in den Magazinen Cosmopolitan, Collier's, Esquire und anderen mehrere Artikel und Kurzgeschichten veröffentlicht. Währenddessen arbeitete er Vollzeit für die Filmindustrie in New York. Er hatte mehrere Stellen in der Öffentlichkeitsarbeit für United Artists, 20th Century Fox, Paramount und andere Unternehmen, bevor er sich für die Schriftstellerei entschied.

Sein Roman The Wall-to-Wall Trap wurde unter seinem Namen im Jahre 1957 veröffentlicht. Anschließend nahm er das Pseudonym John Godey an, den Namen des Herausgebers eines Frauenmagazins aus dem 19. Jahrhundert, um seine Kriminalromane von den ernsthaften Schriften zu unterscheiden.

Weitere Bücher von ihm waren A Thrill a Minute With Jack Albany, Never Put Off Till Tomorrow What You Can Kill Today und The Three Worlds of Johnny Handsome.

Sein Bestseller The Taking of Pelham One Two Three aus dem Jahre 1973 wurde noch im gleichen Jahr unter dem Titel Abfahrt Pelham 1 Uhr 23 ins Deutsche übertragen und 1974 unter dem deutschen Titel Stoppt die Todesfahrt der U-Bahn 123 mit Walter Matthau und Robert Shaw in den Hauptrollen verfilmt.
