Available to download for the first time, The Gideon of Scotland Yard Series by JJ Marric (pseudonym of Grand Master John Creasey).
No week in the life of Commander Gideon of Scotland Yard could be entirely uneventful. However, a mass escape from Millways Gaol made this a particularly harassing week. Ruby Benson set up her killer husband and it's up to Gideon to protect the woman from her bloodthirsty spouse's vendetta--or die trying.
John Creasey (1908-1973) published over 600 books under 20+ different pseudonyms. In 1969 he was given the the Mystery Writers of America’s highest Honour, the Grand Master award.

Loved this one, too.
Another fast-moving story I enjoyed very much. Not exactly a whodunit, because we know who done it, but a suspense about whether Commander Gideon and his band of constables, inspectors and detectives can catch the bad guy who breaks out of prison before he can kill the wife who helped Gideon put him in prison. Didn't like the narrator of this one quite as much as the narrator of the first book in the series, but he was still very good. I will skip the third book because I could tell from the sample that I would not like the narrator. But the narrator of Book 4 sounds good so I'm moving on to that one. I'm late to this author, better late than never. The Gideon series is great.
