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 Writers 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.


The formidable Gideon juggles with half a dozen cases at once as usual, and as usual the principal one - organized robbery with violence on the tops of buses, and the murders that flow from it - is very well thought out. -- The Sunday Times As a character Gideon matures and grows more real with every episode and this yarn will certainly rate as one of the best. -- Nottingham Evening Post Commander Gideon has now fully established his image in the world of whodunits and it is an image with which I can go along every time. London Transport provides the central them here, and this too is convincingly displayed. -- Illustrated London News Gideon remains curiously readable in spite of his almost super-human and very unpolicemenlike virtue. -- The Observer The killing of a bus conductress may not seem to be the stuff of which dramatic cases are made, but the Marric touch puts it over in just another week of Gideon's busy life at the Yard. -- Liverpool Daily Post
