Donald Hamilton is the author of the Matt Helm novels. Fawcett published the
paperback editions in the US. John D. McDonald wrote the Travis McGee
novels, which are also very good, as well as many others including the "The
Girl, the Gold watch and Everything" which is very good story about a man
who can slow time.
