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

"The Hon. Richard Rollison -- the Toff to the police and underworld of a dozen countries -- had always considered himself attractive to beautiful women, but when Irma Cardew came back into his life, he could only wonder who was marked as her current victim. The lovely Irma was charming, witty . . . and guilty of more than one murder. Still, she always managed to be acquitted, no matter how strong the evidence against her. Irma back in action meant that some poor man was soon to be relieved of his bank account, if not his life. The Toff did not know that Irma had set her eyes on him!"; 16mo - over 5" - 6" tall

"The Honourable Richard Rollison -- the Toff to friend and foe alike -- could quite properly be said to be a popular man, in certain circles.

Very quickly the Reverend's reputation was as tarnished as the souls of any of his sinners, and only the Toff could bring him back to a state of grace . . . and at the same time save both the Reverend and himself from a very untimely end!"; 16mo - over 5" - 6" tall
