About this title

Synopsis:

Commander George Gideon of Scotland Yard is working on an intriguing case involving a mysterious man who is known to photograph young girls in the nude and the girls then vanish. He is also attempting to deal with serious internal problems at the Yard when yet another case comes in. There have been several cases of vandalism in major churches and cathedrals, and an anonymous caller has reported a thief in one church. It doesn't take long for Gideon to work out that the churches are threatened with far more than theft and vandalism.

About the Author:

Born in Surrey, England in 1908 into a poor family in which there were nine children, John Creasey grew up to be a true master story teller and international sensation. His more than 600 crime, mystery and thriller titles have now sold 80 million copies in 25 languages. These include many popular series such as Gideon of Scotland Yard, The Toff, Dr Palfrey and The Baron. Creasy wrote under many pseudonyms, explaining that booksellers had complained he totally dominated the 'C' section in stores. They included: Gordon Ashe, Michael Halliday, J J Marric,, Anthony Morton and Jeremy York. Never one to sit still, Creasey had a strong social conscience, and stood for Parliament several times, along with founding the One Party Alliance which promoted the idea of government by a coalition of the best minds from across the political spectrum. He also founded the British Crime Writers' Association, which to this day celebrates outstanding crime writing. The Mystery Writers of America bestowed upon him the Edgar Award for best novel and then in 1969 the ultimate Grand Master Award. John Creasey's stories are as compelling today as ever.
