Jean Bruce was a French writer (22 March 1921) who died in 1963 in a car accident. He is particularly known for the adventures of secret agent Hubert Bonisseur de La Bath, aka OSS 117, of which many novels have been adapted for the screen in the 1960s. After his death, his wife Josette Bruce (who died in 1996) continued to write new titles for the OSS 117 character. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean_Bruce [Aug 2005]
