Jane Shaw Quiz 57

What is the name of Susan's father and what is his profession?

The answer to Quiz 56: This Collins' annual from the late 1950s is unique because it does not contain a Jane Shaw story. For many years from the early 1950s into the 1960s, Jane Shaw had always got top billing, but on this occasion the top billing went to other established authors, as can be seen below.
