The underworld inhabits the Thames, but Scotland Yard's finest detective is never far behind them . . . A dropped package puts him on the trail of an international diamond smuggling operation which uses the Port of London as its entry point. Further complications arise during a fantastic display of furs and jewels on the river, although danger comes from an unexpected quarter.


A portrait emerges that is probably very like that of a good police officer, the portrait of a man both tough and conscientious, not intellectual, but extremely shrewd.

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 Writers of America, latterly as Grand Master.

'He leads a field in which Agatha Christie is also a runner.' - Sunday Times.
