Master crime fiction writer John Creasey’s near six hundred titles have sold more than eighty million copies in over twenty-five 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 phenomenon. Among the many series written were Gideon of Scotland Yard, The Toff, The Baron, Dr. Palfrey, and Inspector West, as J.J. Marric, Michael Halliday, Patrick Dawlish, and others. During his lifetime, Creasey enjoyed an ever-increasing reputation both in the UK and overseas, especially the US. He was honored twice by the Mystery Writers of America, latterly as Grand Master. He also founded the Crime Writers Association and became heavily involved in British politics, standing for Parliament and founding a movement based on finding the best professionals in each sphere to run things.
