An Edgar award winning mystery novel.
"The brutal rape and killing of a young girl -- plus a series of frightening fires -- plus a grave containing the bodies of three women -- plus a fraudulent stock deal -- equal . . .'The best mystery novel of the year' -- Mystery Writers of America.

2 Marric, J. J. (John Creasey) Gideon's Lot
New York Berkley Medallion 1966 Mass Market Paperback Near Fine 


Minor shelf wear, darkening. Spine has a crease that looks like a publisher's defect.

"Gideon's lot is an unenviable one on this lovely May day. To the cases at hand are about to be added troublesome inquiries from the New York police, and information from them about 1) a suspected rapist (American) now in London, and 2) the imminent arrival in that city of a big-league confidence man; the tragic case of Signor Lucci and the orgies on premises owned by him; and the shenanigans of a light-hearted couple named Barnett -- the husband, Barney, is also light-fingered, while his wife is an absolute whiz at the wheel of a getaway car.
In the middle of it all, Gideon is offered the very important job of Assistant Commissioner, and it's that decision, not his many responsibilities, that nearly makes the Commander lose his cool."; 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall

5 Marric, J. J. (John Creasey) Gideon's Vote
New York Berkley Medallion 1966 Mass Market Paperback Near Fine 


Slight darkening.

"Here Creasey-Marric studies a British general-election campaign, fascinating in its similarities and contrasts to our own, and examines especially its police aspects -- the protection of candidates (from burglars among other things), the dangerous activities of extremists of right and lerft (which go so far as the theft of an atomic device) -- and the regular police problems, which persist no matter what the electoral situation . . . The novel is wholly admirable, and no one else could possibly have written it. " Anthony Boucher; 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall
