Have always enjoyed the character of Gideon, and like the London settings as I lived there during the 50s and 60s. I like Gideon and West the best of Creasey s detectives This one gives an idea about the inter agency cooperation required in a city the size of London, and how having a river down the middle affects operations. creasey s gideon Only just started reading J J Marric and am enjoying reading them.
