Gideon’s day is a busy one. He balances family commitments with solving a series of seemingly unrelated crimes from which a plot nonetheless evolves and a mystery is solved. One of the most senior officers within Scotland Yard, George Gideon’s crime solving abilities are in the finest traditions of London’s world famous police headquarters. His analytical brain and sense of fairness is respected by colleagues and villains alike.


Shrewd, exciting, convincing.

The New York Times

This unusual thriller makes fascinating reading because so many investigations and incidents dovetail into each other to provide a breathtaking climax. I want to read more by Marric (Creasey).

Bristol Evening World

The story is told with a very intimate and sympathetic knowledge of police business and an equal understanding of the many-faceted world of crime. The characterisation is excellent, and the narrative moves swiftly.
