GIDEON'S LOT. John Creasey, J. J. Marric.


New York: Harper and Row, 1964. Octavo, Hardcover. First edition. A Gideon of Scotland Yard novel. "Gideon was a major breakthrough for Creasey in terms of the critic's approbation, a character of greater credibility than any of Creasey's other heroes." "...the books give the impression that this is the real Scotland Yard, and the police officers surrounding Gideon have a welcome ring of authenticity. They are the best things Creasey produced, which is intended as no empty compliment-there is little doubt Gideon is the British procedural novel." - Pederson (ed.), St. James Guide to Crime and Mystery Writers, (4th ed.), pp. 243-253. Fine in a near fine dust jacket, some cello-tape reinforcement to head and heal of spine panel, and rear corner. (5418). Item #5418
