Product description


'Marric keeps his plots going and tightens them up, with the expertise of a juggler. His method is strictly documentary. But the understanding and emphasis on routine effectively build up the drama. He depicts the enormous job of the Yard with realism and knowledge.' (Books of the Month)

Fascinating. (Birmingham Mail)

Commander Gideon is now so firmly established that it is hard to realise that he does not really exist. He and his aides, his family, his friends, have developed a solidarity, a presence, that makes rather sad the realisation that they are only fictional. (Books and Bookmen)

Gideon of Scotland Yard emerges as one of the most real working detectives in modern fiction ... a sympathetic and believable professional policeman. (New York Times)

Gideon of Scotland Yard emerges as one of the most real working detectives in modern fiction ... a sympathetic and believable professional policeman.

Exciting, convincing, and definitely one of those you-can't-put-it-down books. (New York Times)

Solidly interesting, with masses of action. (She)

'The Gideon Books are splendid.' (Sunday Times)

About the Author

Master crime fiction writer John Creasey's near 600 titles have sold more than 80 million copies in over 25 languages under both his own name and ten other pseudonyms. His style varied with each identity and led to him being regarded as a literary phenomena. Amongst the many series written were 'Gideon of Scotland Yard', 'The Toff', 'The Baron', 'Dr. Palfrey' and 'Inspector West', as JJ Marric, Michael Halliday, Patrick Dawlish and others. During his lifetime Creasey enjoyed an ever increasing reputation both in the UK and overseas, especially the USA. This was further enhanced by constant revision of his works in order to assure the best possible be presented to his readers and also by many awards, not least of which was being honoured twice by the Mystery Writer's of America, latterly as Grand Master. He also found time to found the Crime Writers Association and become heavily involved in British politics - standing for Parliament and founding a movement based on finding the best professionals in each sphere to run things.'He leads a field in which Agatha Christie is also a runner.' - Sunday Times.
