A career as an FBI agent was not exactly what James Fox's father wanted for his son. The elder Fox, a bus driver and avid baseball fan, had, after all, named his offspring in honor of Jimmy Foxx, the legendary home run king of the 1930s and '40s. "He wanted me to be a professional ballplayer," Fox said. "But when he realized that I couldn't hit a curve ball but I could shoot straight, he said: 'Maybe you should consider a career in the FBI.'

A Netherlands native who began writing mystery novels in Dutch as a teen-ager and later crafted a series of them in English using the pseudonyms James M. Fox and Grant Holmes, died Thursday at home in Palm Springs. James M. W. Knipscheer, known primarily to mystery fans as James M. Fox, was 81 and had recently suffered a heart attack. He was a practicing commercial lawyer in Europe and later in New York, and once served as legal adviser to the minister of war of the Netherlands during that nation's government in exile during World War II. After the war he settled in Los Angeles and wrote a series of mystery novels featuring Johny and Suzy Marshall, an insurance investigator and his wife.
